My father suffered a heart attack followed by a stroke in his right temporal lobe August of 2009.  He was 77.   Since then, he has trouble sleeping, his behavior has been horribly altered, and he can no longer live at home because he forgets who my mother is at times and throws her out of the house.  He was the most kind, loving man before his stroke.  In May of 2010 he was diagnosed as having seizures in the section of his brain affected by the stroke, which coincides with his mood/behavior changes.
 
I saw a TV program on a woman who had epilepsy and received a temporal lobectomy, which put an end to her seizures.  I realize my father does not have epilepsy, but does anyone know if a temporal lobectomy could prevent his seizures?
