When I went to my appointment yesterday my neurologist told me “we still need to know more”. After all of my tests thus far (video EEG, fMRI, MEG, SPECT, PET) the panel of doctors are still uncertain of where exactly my seizure focus is.
Why? Because some of the tests are indicating my seizures are coming from the frontal lobe, while others seem to be showing the left temporal lobe; and they don’t want to proceed to surgery without knowing for sure. So they want me to have an intracranial EEG. First with depth (stereotaxic) electrodes, and then with grid (subdural) electrodes.
