Did Anyone Receive A Before And After IQ Test For Surgery?

Did Anyone Receive A Before And After IQ Test For Surgery?

I just had an IQ test and the whole time I was taking it reminded me of the one I had before and after my temporal lobectomy. I know my pre-surgery score was 126 and my post-surgery score was 122. For some reason, my epileptologist didn't like the drop of four points but I couldn't see why it mattered that much. It's still a high score. This last test I scored 134 so it looks like the more time you get, the better your brain recovers.

Music isn’t the only thing that changed the direction of our world , there is also, the stuff through politics, and what decisions our government make and us citizens can change direction to. Then there is technology. I feel technology is moving to quick. It’s like we are kids . The kid gets something new and is excited playing with it . After awhile the kid gets board with it . Then a new toy comes out and same thing happens. This is the same concept with our technology.

Another thing that changes the directions That we go , is WAR . Civil wars country to country wars, world wars cold wars and ect.

Many of our books , literature , movies and show have change our direction. They say that a lot of our sci-fi novels and movie have changed our technology. For example they say that the idea of the Flip cellphones came from the STAR TREK ( original ) Communicator . Battlestar Galactica ,Star Wars , Star Trek Next Generation , Buck Rogers , Transformers and ect , created the idea of A.I. ( artificial intelligence ) .

Even this years pandemic has change things.

So there’s a much wider Scale that has change our world in different direction.

Thanks, Scott. I'm beginning to wonder if I was an exception and my epi didn't do this as a practice.
