Sodium Valporate Dose are adjusted and we are planning to eliminate Carmabazapine as the baby is having drop attacks. Now the doctor were telling it might not be rasmussen encephalities as it the date prognosis could have been very bad. Still no improvement in verbal communication. Right side weakness and no movement of hand, hardly take few steps. Now my child is 3 years and 10 months. I am really worried what is it, why i dont have any medical answer to manage? I have kept him in Keto diet which is somehow beneficial for forceful vomiting and steady lazy body and weight management in pednosoline. If any one suffering from similar case please lets have conversation and make our life beautiful together. Mother is a child from developing country Kathmandu, Nepal.
