One of the most imoprtant things you need to be clear on is::::
Where is your memory center located? If they remove the left temporal lobe, do you have sufficient memory on the right side to compensate??? That is the biggest question for you, along with the success rate of the neurosurgeon of course.
Katie had seized from the age of 9 months, that the majority of her memory center moved to the right side. You have just started seizing over the last 5 years...what did they tell you about your possible memory outcomes after surgery? Do you have bi-lateral memory?
Maybe make a list of some of your general questions (nothing personal if you don't want) you are going to ask, to sound off to us, so we can maybe help you out, if you would like.
This is a HUGE decision to make and you need to make it with your EYES WIDE OPEN...no guesses or unanswered questions. Once it's done, it's done.
Katie also had a hippocampectomy with her left temporal lobectomy. Katie's pathology report came back conclusive for the Mesial Temporal Sclerosis.
Proud mom of Katie, the strongest and bravest person I have ever known! GBTG.
