I am 30 and have had epilepsy for about 7 years over that time things havent improved, they have gradually got worse. I recently went to see my neuro and i was very surprised that the first thing he mentioned was surgery. However he did say that because it is my left temporal lobe, the surgery would be too risky. He mentioned that my memory and my speech could be effected. So he said that i have to just keep persevering till i find a medication that works!! Im not sure if it is the fact that i live in New Zealand and things
like that are extremely expensive and the public health system
here isnt very good.
I have been reading peoples stories about the success that they have
had with temporal lobe surgery and i would like to be able to think
that it can work for me too.
If anybody else has been given these warnings but been able to go ahead with the surgery, it would be good to know how you did it.
I just had surgery...Go here to watch a documentary of my surgery!
