Hello, thank you so much for getting back to me. My sister has now been confirmed that she will be having the operation. Her Tourettes is exceptionally anxiety inducing and she was very anxious to know more about
it - she was getting ahead of herself worrying equally that she would have the operation and worrying about
what is involved! However she has now spoken with the two neurologists so she has more of an idea of what is involved, and she is meeting with her neurosurgeon in the next few weeks so she will have alot more information on it, so she said she no longer has the need to talk to someone about
it. In a way I'm guessing it might be better that she doesn't anyway, I think its enough to think about
on its own and I imagine everyone's experience is different, so I think she should just listen to the dr's and not worry about
what anyone else says, unless she has a specific question.
She is the first person in Perth to have this particular operation, they have done it for PD but not for Tourettes but its not too different, just targeting a different part of the brain, so we're all rather nervous and crossing our fingers it works for her.
Thank you again for getting in touch with me, its really appreciated.
I hope it is all working out well for you.
