I am currently undergoing tests for epilepsy surgery, I am very apprehensive about surgery if all the tests prove to be in favour of having surgery. I have been having seizures for about 7 years and was finished from my employers as it was dangerous where I was working if I had a seizure so I feel very down some days, I worry over every little thing which some times brings on my seizures. I have read some of the messages which have given me some encouragement to go ahead if all goes well. I haven't had it explained to me yet about surgery and how long it takes and what to expect directly after it. Can anyone please get in touch regarding anything about these things.ThanksMaureen Spencer
