Thank you all so much. This support means alot to me.
I had to bump up my doctor's appt. to an earlier time today, because I was just so sick I couldn't stand it. I feel asleep 5x's inthe waiting room, fell off the scale because I was dizzy.
Okay the good news is, my liver is just a lil inflammed. No hepatitis. But my doctor wants me to drink NO liquor which I told him I'm not a drinker anyway.
He WAS going to keep me on the depakote, until I told him that I had the flu (like symptoms) for a week now. He felt my stomach and could tell, it was tender. I told him I've been a miserable soul for the last week. I can't go on that way.
So he decided to change me, but before he could make a suggestion, I did.
I asked if it was possible, if I can try topamax? He said "Lemme see if it can be taken with your type of seizure"
He came back with a 3 wk sample, and I go back in 3 weeks :) New blood work, new meds. I am hoping for hope.
My mom is on topamax for 2 months now and she already lost 30lbs.
I told the doc, its important that he doesn't put me on any med, that will have a chance of weight gain, since I don't need any help in that dept.
So all we can do is hope and pray this is the answer.
And more importantly, hope that I feel better, and my seizures go away completely.
He had asked if the depakote helped with the seizures. I said "For the most part, yes....but they still come on, during stressful situations"
Again, I want to thank you all. It feels really good to talk to people that just know what you are going thru. I cried twice today, and they are like why? But I'm sure you guys can understand why.
