Good morning ladies...
I like, many of you, have catamenial epilepsy. My seizures are completely controlled except for 1-7 days before I start my period. I have been on several different meds and several different combonations of meds for several years, but nothing works around the time of menstration.
I am 33 and a handfull of doctors have said because of the epilepsy, my baby making days are over. That is perfectly fine w/ me. Since I am no longer contemplating children there is no reason for me to continue to ovulate/ menstrate... especially since the menstration is the reason for the seizures I continue to have.
If I were to have a hysterectomy and didn't have to worry about menstration anymore, would there be a good chance that my seizure amount would reduce/ be eliminated?
If anyone has had any experiences or have comments/ suggestions/ ideas .... I would love to read them.
Many thanks to all!
