How do you know......??

How do you know if the brain surgery worked?  How do you know if it cured your seizures?  Will the surgeon be able to tell you whether or not the surgery was successful immediately after the surgery?  Do they do another video EEG?  Do you just wait to see what happens?  As you can see, I am full of questions, b/c brain surgery isn't the same as having a knee replacement...anyone who has had brain surgery, please let me know if you have the answers to any of the above questions...Thanks
