Excellent news about being seizure free post op
I too had surgery 15 years ago and was told by my surgeon that I would no longer need to take medication. However, my neurologists did not agree with this and expressed that I should stay on Tegretol CR even going as far as to increase the dosage
as my seizures had not stopped although they had dropped from 30 a month to 12 a year (and I only seized at night whilst I was asleep). At this point I was not happy with my consultant and requested to see a different specialist, at the next consultation I had done my own research into meds and requested to be put on Keppra and on starting this med the seizure numbers dropped again. After having a big argument with my consultant it was agreed that I would come off the Tegretol CR, since that med was stopped I have been seizure free (3 months now) and so have come to the conclusion that post surgery the Tegretol was acting more like a convulsant that an anticonvulsant. I have now expressed to my Epilepsy Nurse that if I go another 3 months seizure free, I will be weaning myself off the Keppra, believing what I was told all those years ago from my surgeon as opposed to my local neurologists. As I personally believe that the doctors at my local hospital have been far too cautious for their benefit and not for mine.
I would suggest you find as much evidence you can regarding your surgery and take this with you to your next consultation.
I think it is 3 years seizure free in the UK before you can get a licence, however if you can prove that you only have seizures whilst you are asleep I think it is 4 years and then gets renewed every 3 years.
Good luck with your current seizure free status and future motherhood
