Hi everyone! I havent posted in a long time...I finally got to an Epilepsy clinic for 2 and a half weeks and they took me off my meds to study my seizures. Turns out I hve seizures coming from my L. temp. R. temporal and also right frontal lobe so they have scheduled a WADA or sodium amatl test ....freezing first one half then the other and checking language and memory on each side...its pre-surgical procedure to see if I am suitable surgical candidate I believe....has anyone had this procedure if so any advice or thoughts....I am confident about it but nervous..(I hate needles of any sort) thanks for your help!

I hope the WADA goes well for you! Some people I have talked to think it is kind of a cool test, others do not like it....Hoping it gets the info you need!!
