👋 Hi, I was wondering if anyone who has the RNS could tell me how it feels and if enable you to get off some medication?
Our son was diagnosed with CAE when he was 3 years old, he's now 11 years old & under his consultant was gradually weaned off his medication as he had been seizure free for two years
So since November 2021 he's not been medicated, however over the last two months (from April 2022) we've noticed he's been having what we think to be absent seizures which is having a massive effect on him at school & at home.

Any adults with a LEAT tumor and successful treatment?

What’s troubling me is that it could just be “normal space cadet” /“lost word at the tip of the tongue” exhaustion and not petit mal seizures at all…I hate the idea of disrupting my regime on a “suspicion” as I have no side effects right now.
Now I’ve started imagining scenarios of… read more
Husband has been dealing with various seizure meds for almost 2 years and they still are not under control. I could use a friend......thanks.
Does anybody have a VNS and an RNS that work together? Im trying to get the RNS but at a Previous meeting my dr said they were unsure because i already have a VNS. The last time we spoke to her she said shes spoken to other dr’s and they do have patients who have both and that they work together somehow? My VNS doesnt help me thats why she told us that, i told her we can turn it off and she gave us that info. I’d like to know if there’s anyone on the app who has both and how they work for… read more
