Hi vagellie,I had a surgery back in 2012 and had my ups and downs. My memory was effected alot and I feel mentally detached. Has anyone had surgery and regretted it?
I had a temporal lobectomy years ago to no avail. And yes, I do regret having it done. It did effect my memory and made me very, very depressed, so much so that I even have mood swings to this day. I was only seizure-free for 14 months and then they came back with vengeance. Now I have the Vagus Nerve Stimulator and it helps.
I was told that I couldn't have surgery as my seizures come from both sides of my brain and honestly I refuse to have it done. I would rather live with the seizures than be depressed or worse. Nothing against you guys but I always fear something terrible would happen in a surgery which is possible.
