Is VNS Better For Dual Or Tonic-Clonic?

Hi everyone,

My girlfriend and I both have epilepsy (she has dual, I have tonic-clonic) and we have considered undergoing surgery for the VNS.

If so, we may do so after the New Year only if schedules work for both of us given that we both are in college.

Regardless of the type of seizure, have you had the VNS implanted in you and what has it done for you so far?
