I am just about to meet the surgeo. Asi am a candidate for surgery (all my tests confirm i have a focus point (dysplasia) in my frontal lobe.
It has been mentioned to me that the surgeon is proposing 1 step surgery (i.e no grids inplanted etc! Which is pleasing to hear)
Who has had this surgery? Postive outcomes?negative outcomes?
Would love for any info feedback!!
I’m going in this Thursday for my left amygdala and hippocampus to be removed. How long after the surgery did u have pain? Did ur memory get affected? I’m planning on spending the first week home w check ups from friends and family throughout the day while my husbands at work and my son is w grandma but wil that be a problem if I’m not under watch from someone 24/7 for the first week?
I've had right temporal lobe surgery when I was seventeen and I had the grids placed on to pinpoint my seizure focus and it was in the right hippocampus I had about a quarter size peice removed it didn't stop the seizures but reduce them helped with my migraines still on meds 13 years later I hope your surgery go's well for you.
I've had my brain surgery in the year of 98' . I'm not seizure free, but the frequency of them reduced down to moderate and mild seizures. I'm very happy and satisfied of the outcome.
Unfortunately Iv been tested several times but never found 'the SPOT' actually find 3 spots in my front left and right and temparol lobe😢! Next step for me is not the grids but spikes similar! But I wish you the best of luck the outcome from the op is very successful! Enjoy your new seizure free life😄
