SEEG question!


Sorry for the vanity question, but I'm wondering if anyone has had the SEEG test/surgery and if they have to shave your head?

Thank you!!!!

It depends where you go.  I had mine shaved just where the majority of the leads were (right temporal).  I two on the left and they didn't shave any.  They pulled the top layer of hair and braided it so they only shaved what they had to.
