Hey Brian it's too bad you got the infection cause understand how great it would of been for it to work. Hopefully maybe to get the infection done can cure it. I want to thank you for sharing your story and message me anytime of any changes. Good to hear different stories as it's something I may go through.

Good day Brian, hope the infection is good now though. How long ago was the surgery and did it affect you by having more, the same or less seizures. Thanks for sharing your information.

I'm hoping Keppra and Dilantin work and if not being able to try and see if surgery is an option. I'm behind the doctor decision. Toprimate since I've started has been really crappy for me and just made things worse. It wasn't too bad just Dilantin as I been fighting forest fires for 15 yrs on it.

Have they done an MRI or an EEG? Talk to a neurologist about these and see what's triggering these as soon as you can

Unsure but my neurologist said that they can hook up electrodes (EEG) while in a hospital bed and take me off medication and have a seizure to see if the can find what area my seizures are triggered. If it's safe area to do surgery, they could go ahead and do the surgery

Thanks Jake, this is where I'm at also. I don't want to wait to long before I can have surgery.

May 25, 2018 · Dilantin, Toprimate to Keppra Dilantin and possibly surgery in Epilepsy & Seizures

I been dealing with seizures 16 yrs. I been on Dilantin the whole time but added Toprimate a year and half ago. It seemed to be a little worse since now there looking to weaning off Toprimate for Keppra but stay with dilantin. My new neurologist mentioned another option of taking off meds and into a hospital bed. They would hook up electrodes to see what area the seizures come from. They possibly could look at surgery.
Has anyone done this? What are some flaws to surgery?
