    I am a parent of a child with a seizure disorder/Epilepsy
    An_267759 posted:
    My daughter has had prolonged seizures usually lasting 35 to 45 mins. She only gets them maybe once every 16 to 18 months. She is 8 now and has had this problem since she was about 1. Her primary care doctor and her Neurologist have told my wife and I that a very successful surgery is available and my daughter would be a good candidate for. Has anybody else had a child go through any kind of brain surgery where a specific piece of brain tissue is removed and it actually benefited their child. I guess we want to know if it is worth the risk? Controlling it with Medicine is difficult to keep the right balance between low side affects and keeping her safe. Any response would be appreciated.
