I can see how experiencing all of this, could make you so educated...I know I have learned so much in the past year, or so than I ever knew in 15 years...I take a list to the doctors office with me now !!
TEGRETOL !!! YES !! I was on that for 10 years... and I swear it killed my brain cells !!! Like you said though ... I remember stuff from when I was working in the city, silly stuff, useless stuff, things that are so silly, yet, I cant remember what happened last month !!! My Seizures come from my Left temp lobe which is the memory and comprehension area, which I was just told this in the past year also....
I was also told, for the Wada, both sides would be put to sleep...Grid placement ?? Is that mapping out ???
I know the docs want to do a MEG test... which is a very new test... which is basiclly a mapping out of your brain... is that what you mean ???
I have been trying to find out as much info as possible about this group of docs !!! Actually ..I have a friend that has a 15 year old neice, that had just had an angioma removed by this doctor in October... and they were very happy with the outcome.... The girl is back in school, everything turned out excellent.... I know that doesnt mean, it will be a guarantee for me... but it felt good to hear it....
I am hoping after all of this is over... I can return to work, or go to school and do something in the hospitals, or some kind of healthcare.... I enjoy working with others....I worked in the hospital, in Pre admission testing, before we moved, and I enjoyed it.... It was part time, and enough to get out, I would love to be a nurse... But the problem is I cant stomach BLOOD !!!
... Or anything else gorey for that matter !!! I cant even handle chop meat !!!
One step at a time ... Lets just hope ... I am a candidate first !!!! Thank s !!!!
Tracy... Yes... It is a great help to hear others experiences... I know it took me soo many years to get info.... If I only had sites like these 15 years ago !!!! Then again... I didnt have a computer
