I haven't posted here in a long time butI saw in one of your post that you were contemplating surgery so I had to say something.I saw that you had a cavernous hemangioma in your left tempural lobe.what a coincidence.I had one in my right temporal lobe which was causing uncontrollable seizures.this has been a number of years ago.I had surgery June of 1992 to remove most of my right temporal lobe and have been seizure free since the night before surgery.I hope you are able to have this done for you.It was definately worth it.

Hi RickyB-

Yes!  I am going to go thru with it.  I have already sent my records to the surgeon's office and spoken to the surgeon  to review my MRI.  He says I am a perfect candidate to have it done.  I am waiting for him to review my records and finish up the rest of my work-up.  Then it will be showtime, as they say. 

I'm very happy for you that the surgery worked out for you.  It's so great to hear of someone's personal victory over Epilepsy.  Can you tell me if you are pleased with the outcome as far as any side effects?  Do you have any memory, visual, or language problems as a result?  Thanks for caring.   Glenda :-)

I have no side affects.my memory was bad anyway after ten years of seizures.the only thing wrong with my vision is me getting older and I talk like a Texan so its hard to tell if there is any difference wit hmy speech.I remember the test leading up to surgery,my favorite was the WADA test where they put half your brain asleep to test function.when they put right side to sleep I told them any they wanted to know but when thay put left side out I couldn't even tell them my name.best decision I ever made.my surgery was done at University of Texas Medical Center in Galveston Texas.I reckon I am very pleased with the outcome.Hope you have as much luck as I did.there was minimal pain so don't worry about that and it takes forever for your nerves to grow back.somewhere I have a picture of all the staples in my head after surgery.
I post mainly on the heart board but have posted a few times here in the last few years.I always check in to see if thee is anything I can say to help someone .Just wish all this was available 13 years ago so I could have found answers to question from someone who has been there.I will check in from time to time.If you or anyone else have any questions I will do my best to answer them,take care and good luck
