I have also done the VNS ( Vagus Nerve Stimulation) and I just got home from the DBS ( deep brain stimulation )

I had a right temporal lobectomy, they put me on Keppra just after too and I was 6 years stable so I can’t really say for sure if it was the surgery or the meds, what I do know is that my memory is shot and I’ve lost part of my left peripheral vision, I don’t have tonic clonic seizures like I did before surgery so it’s possible it has changed them and caused them to be less severe.
