Is it possible to have a 2nd temporal lobectomy?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

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.

Hi Chris . I'm much better than I was before. It may not of made me seizure free, but it did help reduce the frequency of my seizures. I went from sever to moderate and mild seizures.

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.
