Paco in answer to your question, I had surgery about 10 years ago, and I did not have any mental disorders after my surgery-or since then.  If any other questions please just ask.

What I want to know does any one have pain where they had there brain removed. Does there hole hurt, it is like the pain of a hurt knee, or elbow.. a pressure. You might at first think you are having a migraine, but it is not if you really look at the differences..

Does your part of your brain removed hurt?or as I put it Does your HOLE hurt?

Thanks every one. Yes I do pray everyday!. The last doctors I seen only keep raising my topamax and  that does not help. I need to get back to the right new brain doc. as soon as I can afford one! You know the money issue...

Pari The invasive test I had was at Cleveland clinic. The test is called dreg and they are the only one in the USA that does it. They have been doing it in Europe for twenty years. They have been testing me for forty plus years and finally found where the seizures begin.

Oh Patti! First I want to say I am so sorry this is happenin to you. Second - I am praying for you right now to have relief from this. God can and does heal, sometimes thru medicine. Finally - have you been seeing your doctor about this? What does he say?
