My nine year old daughter had a grand mal seizure in July.Both the MRI and CAT SCAN were normal.However,her EEG showed abnornalties.The Dr. said that she had several shapr charges in the back of the brain.He didn't diagnose her as having epilepsy,he wants to wait until she has another seizure.However,He does suspect it.He also said that her chance of not having another seizure are less than 100%.This doesn't help me out much.I need to know some stats.Do children that have a seizure along with an abnormal EEG ususlly develope epilepsy?I understand that Drs. don't always give personal opinions.They want to cover themselves. I feel like I am in the dark.Can someone shed some light on this. Thanks,Donna
