    I was directed to you from Bernard who stated you are aware of VNS activity. I am seeking medical documentation on this particular device and what, if any conflicts it might have with a DBS. I have a few theories regarding the odd activity of a second VNS that was implanted in Oct 2011 to replace the older version. There has already been discovery of the VNS device and the DBS device not working together as anticipated.

    Another theory being considered has been probability of the DBS making the attempt to take more control and ensure there is no seizure activity. The problem is the VNS is still connected and needs to be turned off. I would like to know can this take place?

    Seizure Background
    Diagnosed TLE in 92. Tried all the meds nothing has worked. VNS in 2000, didn't help and it just about killed me in 2006. The device was stopping my heart (asystole) during the 30 sec stimulation cycles.

    My nightmare with the vns was recounted in the articles below.
