Bonaduce described to TMZ that during the upcoming operation, surgeons will place a “shunt in my head” and a “drainer” to remove fluid from his brain.

Although Bonaduce remains hopeful about the potential relief the surgery could bring, he admits he “will be completely disappointed if it doesn’t work”. Bonaduce added: “I’d rather be safe than sorry. I don’t want to hope too much that I will be cured.

“I can’t walk right now, I just can’t,” he revealed. “I’ll never run on the track again, I’ll never box again, but if I can get from here to my kitchen on my own, well done!”

As for the cause of the hydrocephalus, Bonaduce isn’t entirely sure, but he thinks his past behaviors and activities could be factors. “I did so many stupid things,” Bonaduce said. “I took a guitar to the head. It hurt and may have been the cause of it all.

Bonaduce added, “I got punched in the face by Jose Canseco, a 265-pounder. professional athlete. And by the way, I haven’t touched the ground.

In addition to playing the role of Danny Partridge in “The Partridge Family”, Bonaduce also appeared in “Monk”, “Girlfriends” and “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”, and later in his career fought as a boxer and wrestler.
