I had right mesial Temp sclerosis. I had a partial right temp lobectomy in 2001. The sz's returned and so in 2002 they removed the whole right temp lobe. The sz's are still not controlled but aren't as bad as they used to be. I still would suggest surgery to anyone who's a candidate. More people are helped by surgery than not. Recovery time isn't long, swelling and headache was about a week to two weeks. For both surgeries I was in the hospital for 2 days. I did suffer some anxiety about one month after my second surgery which is common. The first one I was already on Neurontin which has anti-anxiety qualities so I wasn't affected by the anxiety so when I had problems the second time they put me back on Neurontin and I was fine. I do have some short term memory problems, but my whole right temp lobe was taken out the second time. Typically they only remove the amount the size of a female's size index finger. Hope this helps.
My site is already in your resource directory.
If a poster is in dire need of information, is it advertising to merely answer the question in a concise manner by pointing them to a site that is already in the directory?
BTW: That's a serious question not a flippant response! Many posters are not aware of the intricacies of message boards -- especially their associated databases, and link resources.
