I had a seizure and collapsed. They found a brain tumour in the hospital. I had surgery to remove a benign meningioma from the frontal lobe. The operation was ten weeks ago. I am taking 500mg Keppra twice daily. How long will I have to continue taking this for ? I do not have epilepsy.
I've had two operations for meningiomas. First one in 2013 left frontal lobe. I had seizures from it like you. My neurosurgeon from Shands in FL said it was protocol for you to stay on it a year after surgery. However, the surgery I just had for one behind my left eye on June 24th did not cause any seizures so same surgeon told me I could wean off starting at six weeks after. I weaned off completely today!!!
