Anyone Ever Have Epilepsy Brain Surgery? Can You Share Your Experience?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Theyve been trying to get me to get epilepsy brain surgery for years the older I get the more I'm considering it as I'm seeing how it's affecting my life as an adult. I just want to hear other people who have already done it experiences so I know what I'm getting into. Did it completely cure you? Did your seizures get worse? Any mental changes in personality or mood? How painful was it? Etc.
