Jennifer, It is great to hear your son is active and has a support group. What type of seizures does he have? What stuck out the most in this message is that he swims competitively, with epilepsy! Swimming is a huge fear of mine. How do y’all manage seizures in order to allow for swimming?

He has focal seizures & are controlled on trileptal. He does not swim alone, but he has like 90 kids on his team. There is usually 3 coaches on deck, so he feels comfortable.

Hello @abcla1315 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I can see that you quickly found a connection with @jenfossbru with interest in her son's swimming.

Do you happen to have epilepsy?
