Has Anyone Had Brain Surgery To Correct Their Seizures? Im Scared And Would Love To Hear Your Stories And Get Any Advice I Can
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've got complex partial seizures with identified abnormality in my temporal lobe. Seizures are focal so my neurologist said surgery is an option I should consider, but I'm pretty scared and not sure it is worth it. My seizures aren't very bad and I could still lead a mostly-normal life but I plan to become a doctor and with sleep deprivation being a major trigger for me it may prevent me from pursuing my desire to work in a hospital (which means long hours). Im not sure about the process of… read more

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.

Oh! that is very disappointing. I’m sorry that this has happened to you. If my Dr ever talks to me about this as a remedy I will certainly give this a second thought

Recovery Time After Temporal Lobectomy Surgery?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm planning on having the temporal lobectomy surgery next month. What is the expected timeline of feeling better? My doctor said 5 weeks but I am interested to hear what that means. Does that mean in two weeks you felt better enough to go out or not need assistance or did it take longer? Thanks!

Acute Post-operative Frontal Epilepsy Surgery
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hey everyone, I hope you guys aren't having seizures.
I have done frontal epilepsy surgery, the traditional type, resection surgery.
the surgery went nicely and the doctor resected almost everything in the damaged area, but after the surgery, I start to have acute post-operative seizures.
Moreover, It's been over 2 months, and still having seizures, I find that weird.
Has anyone done traditional surgery and been experiencing post-operative seizures????
Thank you,
Feras

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member
I would suggest go with Laser ablation then traditional surgery.
Good luck!

Taste
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

How many days after a seizure does your mouth return to tasting food. Everything at the moment taste sour

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Nothing taste different to me, but I sometimes crave water when I'm having a strong aura. I start swollowing a lot too, even if I'm not drinking anything
