Temporal Lobe Resection

Temporal Lobe Resection

I have epilepsy in both temporal lobes is there answer to a type of surgery for this condition?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

I have medial temporal sclerosis on the right and something on the left temporal lobe and had a temporal resection and a neuropace (DBS) implant on the right. just like my VNS the doctor said it needs to be adjusted which can take up to 2 years. So I'm not sure if it'll be successful or not. My head hurts and I needs to scan my head to download the seizures I probably have when sleeping like before.

It all depends where the damage is in the lobes. I have bilateral temporal lobe epilepsy but they cannot operate because removing the scarring would leave me senseless if you catch my drift... just away with it

I had surgery done in my left Temporal Lobe in 1998. Usually before the brain surgery they do many pretests
