oh i see what you mean now... just want me to reply to the other thread in here!
I just finished reading your reply in the other thread and appreciate the information you provided me with. I do recall my doctor saying that it is located on my frontal lobe on the left side. Today, I was told by a doctor that the petscan picked up something in the temporal lobe and not the frontal lobe. I can quote my doctor that he said on one occasion in the office that "my seizure is located on my vision" I guess he was being very vague and not specific with the name of the location of my brain. I do know though, that he has said on many occasions that it is the frontal lobe that my seizure is located on and that it has never changed since the telemetry was done over 3 years ago. Until, further technological research is made, I am considered a "high risk".
I went ahead and did some study on my docotor today, his name is Vicente Iragui, and his wife Evalyn Tecoma who is in the same UCSD clinic and both specialize in epilepsy. Doctor Iragui is a professor and Director of the UCSD Epilepsy Center, has served as a principal investigator for 4 commercially sponsored clinical studies and participating investigator on 3 commercially sponsored clinic studies for epilepsy. this is their website:
sorry, i don't know how to hyperlink the web so if you care to look it up thats their web.
as much of credential that my doctor has and the respect that he gets in that hospital. I feel that I need to just try a different doctor for second opinion, just like you did. I don't want to throw away most of my life and never look back to say that I never tried searching for the possibility of answers. I don't want to go on with a question mark on my head of "what if?" what if I tried searching for a different doctor for only a second opinion. The doctor who I spoke with who is doing his fellowship at the UCSD, told me that it would be a good idea for me to go and get a second opinion and to try UCLA or UCSF, he thought that it would be a better idea to go to a hospital that is closer rather than flying to Georgia. Besides those hospitals are one of the 20 best hospitals in the country along with your MCG. I will do some research with those hospitals and check with my insurance too. I will keep you posted.
