You're probably looking for certainty, I cant give you that, 70% will have a cure with treatment, 30% wont have a total stop to seizures, im in that later group. I accept I wont be cured. In my experience it varies by dr by city by country. One end they try and stop seizures at all costs no matter the cost to your quality of life, the other end they go too lightly & maybe seizures get worse. But you can find an optimum of medication in between where your seizures are controlled as the best they can be whilst your quality of life is good. Lifestyle changes can give you a positive sense of control & real improvement too. Youre in control of your life, not epilepsy controlling you. x
