I am not new to epilepsy just this baird.

I walked off about 4 years ago for personal reasons.

I got my VNS because I was rea;;y s;iding down hill and almost died.

I was just wondering if anyone else has a vns and what your setting was on it nad if you are in Hawaii.

My VNS iwas set to 5 minutes OFF aand 20 seconds ON.  now it has been adjustrd to 1.8 minutes OFF and 21 seconds ON.

I started responding to the VNS at 3 months.  I can use that magnet and am able to stop the oncoming sz and the aura.  although sometimes I will miss.

I got it on sept 20 of 07 replaced on august 25 of 10,
