  My doctor is considering a pacemaker for the brain, I have delt with seizures to the last eight years, I have been on most of the mediciation out there and our running out of options.  If somebody else has ever heard of the please let me know.. I know they do the surgery at Johns Hopkins, which is not an issues.


Re: question

Not to put you of having surgery but there is a risk.  I t's for you to decide not a doc or anyone else but you.  Theres at least 30% that they have'nt a clue, about is your epi that bad?

Take time and consider your options, get as much info as you can then make your own disionun, after all it's your life and your health on the line.

Go to nhs direct and they'll be brutal but honest
