multiple seizures
My 12 year old son was diagnosed with epilepsy at 3 months of age. different meds throughout the years kept him controlled for the most part. Hes been on just about all of them. once he turned 11 he started having them everyday, grand mals, partials u name it. sometimes up to ten a day. Meds dont work for long and now they want left temporal lobe surgury. weve done spect scan eegs for 5 days 4 times the list goes on. durring the most recent spect scan they had him hooked up to the eeg and they told me hes having multiple seizures at night while asleep. when i asked what could happen they said this is something we worry about in all our patients with night seizures. thats it. so after a long explination heres my question, how dangerous is this, is there any thing else i can do? AND THEY KEEP TELLING ME ONE MORE TEST THEN THEY WANT ANOTHER. i TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THAT THERE JUST MAKING SURE THIS WILL BE SAFE BUT HOW LONG IS TOO LONG? wILL ALL THESE SEIZURES HURT HIM? PLEASE HELP!!!!
