Correct me if I'm wrong, but are you saying you had the brain surgery and you are STILL having seizures? Are they slight seizures that occur at least once a month? With this being the year 2015 verses the year 1991- I'd say 2015 has more specialized equipment for seizures with better hospitals that are specialized for Epilepsy patients and more medicines to choose from than ever before. I went cold turkey for about 4 years without any medicines for my seizures. It's not worth it. You and I both know the side effects of those mean, hateful seizures that sneak up on you unexpectedly. If you have a girlfriend and kids, you want to be comfortable too. Are you comfortable? By going to a specialized hospital, not just a plain old hospital around the corner, but a hospital with at least a 4 star rating would be worth your time and money. There's so much technology here now on epilepsy, the hospital needs you to go see if it will cure you too. I've been a guinea pig for 17 years on every medication they have come up with to find a cure for seizures that occur during the menstrual cycle. No success. I'm a good candidate for brain surgery now. I'll be on a waiting list soon. I didn't give up. So don't you give up either.
