I have tried 4 epilepsy meds for focal staring spells that last for hours. Unfortunately none have helped and the dr. is talking about surgery if this would help. My seizures are located in the temporal lobe I think as this is where all my EEGs show.... Although they haven't caught a staring spell on an EEG yet. I am supposed to have a portable EEG at my home in the next week. This will determine the type of seizure and it's location. Just curious about surgery and what others experiences with this kind of seizure and the best treatment for it.
