Has Anyone Had Brain Surgery To Correct Their Seizures? Im Scared And Would Love To Hear Your Stories And Get Any Advice I Can

Has Anyone Had Brain Surgery To Correct Their Seizures? Im Scared And Would Love To Hear Your Stories And Get Any Advice I Can

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

Surgery And Memory

Since our memory is so bad from having seizures and taking meds. Having surgery will make memory worst or better?? I am so close to doing surgery now.

Do You Still Have Your License?

Do You Still Have Your License?

Something some said got to me. Not all forms of epilepsy make tou loose consciensness. I am always alart and and aware of several of my triggers. My sezuires are either absent, mind staring or simple/conplex jerks (like a cold chill).

I have complex partial seizures. My neurologist and I have talked about my license as I have brought it up. He sees no reason to revoke my license and my diagnosis does not require them to be.

Anyone else still have their license?

Has anyone taken clobazam for seizures?

I take keppra, lamatrogine along with Ativan. I'm nervous switching from Ativan to clobazam.

I suffer from temporal lobe epilepsy and only have absent seizures

KayRoberts, I had one more thought. When the doctor titrates you down off the Keppra and onto the clobazam, it might help to keep a med diary (write down how you’re feeling when you take them) to show… read more
