... either the side effects or just not working anyway. I have got scarring on the temporal lobe and I am going to see the neurosurgeon on the 27th July regarding the possibility of brain surgery. What would be done in this particular process and how successful is it?
I have had the brain surgery twice. But both times I had it were times in the 60's and 70's when they didn't have the right equipment to do it successfully. Mine is also the temporal lobe. I've been told now they can successfully take the full temporal lobe right off the brain to discontinue the seizures now. My doctor wants me to try the seizure operation for a 3rd time. I just feel because I've already been cut open twice and the seizures are much more controlled now, I'd rather just stay on the medicine now. I used to have 80-88 yearly. Now, I only have 10-15 a year with the medicine I take. If you do have the surgery, have good luck with it.
