My 21 yr old son has epilepsy (partial seizures) and has been on 8 meds since diagnosed 2 years ago. He can have has many as 30 per day to maybe 1 to 0. Surgery is out because it will leave him paralyzed. We need some suggestions or anything to help him. I hate seeing him suffer and he so wants to be able to have a life again.View Thread
Thanks for your response. The physician didn't want to do the VNS but it seems to have worked for you. We will try again. My son has to see the physician again in 3 weeks. We have to drive 3 hrs from here to see someone because there isn't a good physician where I am.
Thank you for the support and the additional information. I will look into it. I will also be coming back for help and support. Being a caregiver is hard and I just hate seeing my son suffer and then I have family members who don't want to believe that he has these seizures and have called him a liar. They also don't understand why he can't work. Having up to 37 seizures a day makes it hard to get a job and maintain one. He tried.
