Surgery for me?
I am 37 years old and had my first grand mal seizure when I was 35. I started having several a week. No medicines seemed to help me at first. Then they did find a combination that works, Depakote and Topamax. I have been seizure free for one full year this month. I think my seizures start from the right frontal lobe. I have side effects from my meds, such as feeling "dumb as a doorknob", memory loss, tiredness, loss of hair, urinary tract infections, and the list goes on... I was wondering what you all thought about surgery for me. I didn't know if I should bring it up to my neuro or should I leave well enough alone seeing that I am seizure free? Any input would be greatly appreaciated.
