Temporal Lobectomy

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Is it possible to have a 2nd temporal lobectomy?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I was told that since seizures occur in the left temporal lobe, surgery is not an option, as it could make my memory problem worse.

Any Thoughts On "implanting Inhibitory Interneurons? I Also Have The Option Of Laser Thermal Ablation, And An Anterior Temporal Lobectomy.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have the option to be evaluated for a clinical trial. They would inject brain cells into my hippocampus. I would have to be on immunosuppressive medications for a year after. All three options are scary. But patching with stem cells seems like it might be the most rewarding.

Medication

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone had a temporal lobectomy, if so how soon were you able to wean off your meds and how was the process. My dr told me 2 years seizure free. My surgery was in July of last year so I've still got almost a year, but I'm having a lot of trouble with pharmacies and feel like it would be better to wean off early than to potentially go without them all of the sudden. I would like some opinions on this.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I’m the opposite. I couldnt do a second if I wanted. Although Im going to do the DBS ( deep Brain Stimulator ) surgery. Hopefully this will help more.
