I just completed 4 days of EEG and video monitoring of my complex partial seizures at the Cleveland Clinic. They said all of the the seizures that I had showed up on the EEG on my left temporal lobe. But there was also some additional abnormal EEG activity on 2 occasions on my right temporal lobe (when I was not having a seizure and having no abnormal activity on the left side).
Because of this, they may need to do invasive EEG (requiring them to drill holes). Yikes! Has anyone been through this? How does this compare with the actual surgery? Is it risky? I haven't had the PET scan yet, but I'm hoping that maybe that could eliminate the need.
