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!
