May have brain surgery...Need advice!!!!
This is the first time I have ever used this website, so please forgive me if I miss something. So, here's my story...I am 31 years old. I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2004. I have had a few grand mal seizures (around 6 or 7), but I have a lot of petit mal seizures (complex partial) - over 60 in 2010. This has greatly affected my life. I totaled my car in 2010 because I had a seizure while driving. Thank God no one was hurt, including myself. Needless to say, I cannot drive right now. I also has several seizures at work, which put a stress on things. I have tried many medicines (not sure of spelling), including, Lamictal, Keppra, Carbatrol, and others. I have tried name brand and generic. My seizures have not gotten better. My doc is now recommending brain surgery, as a lesion has been found in my front temporal lobe. It is currently not a tumor, but could turn into one. I have not taken the WADA yet, but it will be scheduled soon. I would love to speak with anyone who has had brain surgery and the results he/she has had. Thanks!
