I've been undergoing surgery evaluation at the Cleveland Clinic for some months now. I became an candidate and have my surgery scheduled for Oct 16. I typically have 8-10 complex partial seizures (plus some auras) each month. Then, two weeks ago I suddenly had 5 grand mal and 3 complex partial seizures in 1 day. I went to the Cleveland Clinic, where they treated me and added Lyrica to the medicine I take (previously on just Dilantin).
The strange thing is that I haven't had any seizures or auras for 2 weeks now, which is a really long time for me.
Is the Lyrica possibly helping me? I had tried just about every other drug (added to my Dilantin) with no success, so it was very unlikely this would help.
My surgery is schedule in 3 weeks. Should I delay it now and see if the Lyrical is helping me? I'm so scared since I had those 8 seizures in a day with no explanation. I plan to call my neurologist on Monday and ask them what to do.
I was prepared for the surgery and was certain I would go through with it, but now feel unsure of it.
