Re: Dr suggesting VNS anyone had this procedure in 2010

My dr. is suggesting the same thing.  I would like to consider it, but I can't find anyone  with generalized epilepsy that has had the surgery.  I've read that it works for the ones that come from one point in the brain, but it hasn't really been used alot for my type.  I also know a family that has a teenager with a different type of epilepsy, and his has helped out a great deal.
