My now 9month old son contracted bacterial meningitis just over 3 months ago. He spent 3 weeks in hosp. At first he had no neck control and was like a newborn again but has since mostly regained that. At his most recent app with neurology they said his cognitive skills r good but his motor skills are not so good as he cant sit or weight bear (he has increased tone in his legs) he can roll to 1 side but not the other. He has regular physio. He will be getting another mri in March wen hes around 1 and the neurologist thinks there may be some scarring which was not seen on the last mri wen he was an inpatient.. He has also recently started babbling a small bit which is good. Also at his hearing test 2months ago it was found he had hearing loss in 1 ear and he has another hearing test in 7 weeks to recheck. I would like to know if anyone has had similar after effects.
