i want to know as much as possiable about it they r talking about doin this on my daughter
I am 100% positive that hormones are playing a huge factor in both the frequency and intensity of my seizures but I’m not sure where to start to address it. If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE let me know!
I started with seizures just as I was coming out of menopause at 54. I’m going to be 64 in June. All of my family and friends as well as myself think my epilepsy was brought on by a hormonal change. I… read more
I have heard in the past from several friends who have tried many others including surgery, implants or non-medication alternative methods. However, I think it would help if those of you who have to share your experience with those are now at the point where they have been told that medication will never allow them to reach a long-term seizure free state.

I’ve had epilepsy since the age of 2. I’m now close to 50 yrs. Of age
i have had epilepsy since 4 and i was recently diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy and my epilepsy specialist said that surgery might be a good option but i also have other types of epilepsy so i dont know if my other types would be affected not only that but i have a traumatic brain injury and acute encophalophaly
I don’t blame You!
I know that a few of my friends have expressed that if that had known before they had their first brain surgery what they know now, then they never would have agreed to it. Who else feels this way? How many feel that the brain surgeries have improved your quality of life?
I am not going into this eventual trip to the seizure center with any intention of agreeing to a brain surgery until there is no other options. I believe because my neurologist is at least in his late 60s, that he is very… read more
But the good thing for me is going through all the pain I became seizure free.
