Do Seizures Feel Different After Surgery? I'm Wondering If All My Deja Vu Episodes Are Seizures.

Do Seizures Feel Different After Surgery? I'm Wondering If All My Deja Vu Episodes Are Seizures.

My epileptologist told me I wouldn't know for sure if I had another seizure because it would feel different. He also said there would be feelings I question that are just that...feelings. You can't have brain surgery and feel good as new right away.

I am not eligible for brain surgery because my head injury damaged both sides of my brain. I have been epileptic for 32 hrs. If it was possible for me, I would do it. Make sure all drs. And surgeons have ALL of your info, past and present. Either way you go I wish you the best in my prayers.

Im sure it’s very possible , for any type of change in the brain . Our brain is a sensitive biological computer. So yes, whether it’s good or bad things can change.

For me it had severe seizures and stuttered a lot. Today I still seizure, but they are mild and moderate. I still stutter, but not as much as I did before the brain surgery.
