I am wondering has anone else heard of or had this surgery and if so how is it working for you. I had it last year. It has helped me not have seizures. I had my surgery last year in September & my last seizure was this May when my aunt passed. Although I am still on my medicines. I am not having seizures like before thanks to the surgery that I didn't at first want to have because I was scared of being cut on or the size of the scars. Before I had my surgery I had 15 seizures within 2 weeks. When that happened I decided to have the surgery. I don't regret having it either.
