Hi everyone. My name is Paul. I had simple partials and gran mal seizures from age 9 until 25. In 2000 i was referred to the mayo clinic. There my life changed for ever. I met Dr. Greg cascino an epitologist. After a year of try meds i became a canidate for surgery. In october of 2001 i had a right temporal lobectomy and hippocampus removed. I’ve been seizure free since, and med free since 2004. Now that I’ve been given a second chance at a normal life, i try and help other’s with any questions about the choice of having surgery and how it effects your life after. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have.

Welcome to Connect, @doughboy47. It’s great to have your experience to add to our group.
@clawrence has also shared her success story with surgical treatment for epilepsy. I believe @stayfree may be considering surgery.

@doughboy47 do you have experience with weaning of meds before the surgery? @stayfree is dealing with this right now and may have some questions to ask.
