Hi yeye2020. I would say yes. I have come across people who had surgery done and are now free from seizures for many years and no longer on medication. That is cure for me. My 18 year old daughter who has been epileptic for 12 years, just had a modified hemispherectomy done. She is now recovering but unable to have physio due to terrible pain in her right hand and foot. Has anyone had or heard anyone who has undergone this procedure?
Thank you so much. My daughter’s functions keep on deminishing. She is now weaker on the right side from face to toe. For the past three days the seizures increased and a lot of saliva coming out even when she is not having a seizure. Her speech is affected. I have taken her out of school. I have now decided for surgery but want to consult with Mayo Clinic. Difficult to decide which one to choose. Kindly advice
Hi Patricia. My name is Anna and my daughter Tashiya turning 18 tommorow is epileptic and at the moment considering surgery as advised the her doctor. She will need to have a left hemispherotomy done. At the moment it seems like the fits have stopped or rather happening once every two weeks however her speech functions and processing of information and memory is very much affected. I am at the cross point to decide on whether to have the surgery done or not. Sorry I could not help you out here.
