NES can be treated with AED's (Anti-Epileptic Drugs) such as Carbamazipine, Lamictal, Sodium Valporate etc... Was the disc removal 100% successful? It is possible that if one of the nerves was slightly damaged (as is the case sometimes in disc removal) then it is possible that it is causing abnormal electrical disturbances. I would ask your doctor if he thinks he knows what is causing the seizures.
Please keep us updated
I dont know really what made me think of nerve damage. I was just trying to link spinal surgery and seizures and thats what came to mind. Have you considered getting a second opinion to see what they think?
I would love to here what your doctor says. You will have to keep us up to date. RE: People replying... sometimes people dont respond because they simply dont know what to say. Other members often are also looking for help and only look at their threads for responses. Please dont be disheartened. I suppose thats one of my jobs, no make sure nothing goes without a response. Although not a MOD for epilepsy, Carla is always around and does a good job as well.

Hi Homeward Bound,
I agree with Carla on this one. Surgery is a serious option for anyone... and spinal / brain / heart surgery is amongst the most serious. Get all the options you can and get a second opinion if you feel you need one. There is nothing wrong in getting a second opinion... it simply means you get a better view of the situation.
