I have epilepsy in both temporal lobes is there answer to a type of surgery for this condition?
How does seizure surgery work?
Is it part of my parietal lobe seizures? Maybe focal aware? I have focal unaware mostly (complex partials), also simple focal aware (auras) of rt temporal parietal lobes, and sometimes bilateral to left side temporal parietal lobes also. Anyone ever experience this type of sensation or is it something else??
I had surgery on my left temporal lobe in 1996 and had part of it removed and now im back to having seizures again about 5 years later to where they said its from the rest of my left temporal lobe what will it cause if i was to have surgery again i already have a bad memory. They say it may be part of my right temporal lobe also
I want to know if the Temporal Lobe Resection would be something that I could be considering than the VNS, if so I just want advice from patients who have had it and let me know there experience.
1. What manifestations of temporal lobe seizures have you experienced?
2.What absence seizures have you experienced (other than the typical ones like lips smacking, etc)?
When I'm asking these questions, obviously we don't know ourselves and so we depend on others to record them. So what have they said they observed?
I'm considering having an operation to remove a temporal lobe lesion. I'm told there's a risk that it could handicap speech or language, and it doesn't always remove all seizures (if any at all). Did surgery cause you any kind of problem that makes you regret surgery?
Does anyone with TLE get a burning sensation when having a small focal seizure?
I have right temporal lobe (lesions on the right side)epilepsy and I'm currently on Vimpat. Anybody out there have vivid or weird dreams? Some of mine are extremely life like and some are weird enough that I probably would tell them to anybody. Some of them stick in my memory even when I wish they wouldn't.
Honestly my neurologists tells me that partial seizures an temporal seizures are stress related seizures not epilepsy. But at the hospital Last night the doctor told me they are epilepsy seizures. I'm confused does any one know anything about this.
