LONG TERM EPILEPSY

I'm 18 and have suffered from epilepsy (complex partial seizures and cluster) for 11 years but the complex partial are unlike any my neurologists have ever seen I've tried almost ever possible solution involving medicines nerve stimulators, just about everything but an operation for removing tissue (because of the fact that is my entire brain that is effected) could anyone give me some advice

Hello there,
The decision for brain surgery is usually taken when all medications fail or in cases where repeated seizures may cause adverse effects on the brain which may lead to progressive cerebral degeneration and handicaps. When the results of diagnostic tests show a structural focal brain lesion, unsatisfactory psychosocial adaptation due to poor seizure control, unacceptable sedation, or other drug side effects surgery is usually taken up for controlling the seizures. It may be difficult to confirm about the most appropriate treatment in your condition without knowing your complete medical history and clinical examination findings. Do clarify all your doubts with your neurologist before the surgery. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
