    Seizure Background
    Partial Seizures started in 2012?? (probably earlier, just didn't know what they were) and progressed to Complex Partial Seizures in Aug 2013. Diagnosed with Right Temporal Lobe Epilepsy after EEG in December 2013. Originally prescribed Trileptal, but had an allergic reaction after 4 weeks. Switched to 500mg Keppra, but had to increase to 1,500 per dose. Also added Vimpat 200mg per dose.

    Update!! Had RTL Surgery end of March 2015. So far so good!! I went back to work in May. I'm a CPA working for a large publicly traded company. Things are going well. Effects of surgery include limited upper peripheral vision and I have short term memory issues, but I hardly notice. In the whole scheme of things I will take those over seizures anyday!!!!

    Here's a link to an awesome show about patients who have been helped by Florida Hospital.
    My neurosurgeon is in episode #302, Dr. James Baumgartner
