Has Anyone Here Been Evaluated And Gone Through Intracranial EEG And Brain Resection?

Has Anyone Here Been Evaluated And Gone Through Intracranial EEG And Brain Resection?

Based on my doctor, I might need to get two areas of my brain evaluated with intracranial EEG with the possibility to perform brain resection. Has anybody here gone through a similar process that is willing to share? Please let me know.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member. I’m happy that it worked on reducing my seizure frequencies down to mild and moderate ones. It just didn’t make me seizure free.

Before the surgery my Epileptologist asked if I wanted to try and Neuro brain surgery. At that point, I have already been through many medication adjustments. They would get increased, another med would get added, then that too would get increased . I finally was up to 4 meds on max dosages by my 20’s. No of them controlled me. That’s when he brought up the surgery. I was all for it . Even before I was shown the interviews to the many who have done this treatment.

My meds don't make me seizure free either but as you said reduce both the intensity & frequency of any. We can rest assured that none will be out of control. We realize how little a harm a seizure does so why worry? To dwell on what occurs or why seems to create too much stress or anxiety. Seizures come & go then we're fine.Unlike many far more disabling health conditions epilepsy just doesn't compare.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member . It was a very interesting experience. One thing I forgto mention was was the main reasoning of the procedure. They were mapping out a closer direct location of my seizures, because after this procedure, I went to my brain surgery the next day

Randy That is Very interesting-how so much more info bout specific brain areas can now be gotten. How we react to various stimulation from seizures specific to each one's type. So treatment will be most effective.
