My granddaughter has had seizures since she was six (6) years old. She just turned 16 and is heartbroken that she can't even think about getting her license or driving because she still has seizures at a rate of about one (1) per month. As she gets older her normal beautiful personality is being transformed into a beautiful girl who is beginning to think she is less than everyone else because she has gran mal seizures.
Her doctor is not talking about exploring surgery and is just treating her with medication at this point. He has increased her medication over the last year but her seizures are still not controlled.
I'm thinking about taking her to the Mayo clinic or to an expert for her to be checked to see if she is a candidate for surgery or just how to explore this option. She has had many tests to isolate the brain section that is the source of the problem but he is still not recommending surgery however he is not a surgeon.
If you have gone through the process to explore the surgery option, please send me any information you have so I can start the process for her.
