Neuro Pace and guinea pig
I spoke w/ my neurosurgeon's coordinator for the Neuro Pace and I found out some disturbing information. First off, she told me that I was a good candidate to have the Neuro Pace surgery. I thought this was great until she told me that the Neuro Pace has a battery that needs to be replaced every 1 1/2-2 years. Which means every 2 years I have to have brain surgery again to replace the battery. And the most disturbing thing she told me is that 10% of the patients in their study became seizure free, 10% seizure activity got worst, and 80% of the patients nothing had changed. Especially since this is a still new (3 years), I don't think this is anything I want to get involved in. I feel like I'm just merely a guinea pig. Any thoughts guys and gals?
