I have been considerating a VNS after reading a lot of these posts. I mentioned it to my neuroligst today and he thought it was definitely an option if I wanted to explore it. I wondered if at age 60 it was too old to take another step like this, and he said no, it's never too late. I have tried every combo of lots of meds without complete control. I'm hesitating becausen't understand what to expect as side effects, and also how the magnet works. Any info would be appreciated.
