Jun 17, 2017 · Has anyone had a temporal lobectomy, resulting from epilepsy? in Epilepsy & Seizures

The VNS is a type of small pacemaker that is put into the chest on the left side. It has wires that wrap around the vagus nerve that sends signals to the brain preventing seizures. There is no pain at all. While it is working during a seizure, your voice seems to lower in pitch.

Jun 16, 2017 · Has anyone had a temporal lobectomy, resulting from epilepsy? in Epilepsy & Seizures

I had a right temporal lobectomy June 2016, but I still have complex partial seizures, just not as strong. I’m looking into having something else done. I tried to say, “I don’t want to reduce it, I want to get rid of it.” I was told then that I would soon be able to be taken off my medication. But now, a full year later, I’m still on my same dose of meds. I’m not trying to have you rethink your decision. I’m just telling you that there is still a possibility it may not succeed expectations. I also had a VNS done which still had the same outcome.
