I was diagnosed 5 years ago after a cluster of 40 Nocturnal Grandmal Seizures in a row and admitted for 5 days in hospital. After coming to I was also paralysed on my right side for 48 hours which was touch and go...
I have come through that now and had no seizures since (5 years) as I am medicated by Lamictal 300mg twice daily and Topomax 100mg twice daily. I do suffer from slight anxiety, panic attacks and mild depression and weight gain which is a battle in itself.
My husband and I are thinking of trying for a child but I am 36 and my Neuro has told me my risks of my age alone are higher and he doesn't really want to change my meds for us to even try.... I feel like we have been robbed of our chance to even try for a child and it has upset us so much. (I know that I need to look after myself too)
My question here is - Are they any other couples in a similar situation that have been given other options? We just feel like our chance has been taken from us without any other options been discussed and it's so frustrating...,
Thanks for reading - any feedback would be greatly appreciated - lots of love♥
