Hey Guys!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm sorry I haven't been on in the last few days. Let me bring you up to speed...

 

The doc thinks I have seizures, I went for an EEG today in milwaukee. Had to stay up since 3am.... My cousins helped me with that.

 

Have an MRI on Thurs, and a meeting with my neurologist on Friday for the results of the EEG.

 

Hopefully by the end of the week we will know if they're really seizures.

 

Do keep rooting for me in your prayers :wub:

Thank you, Boomer!

 

They did say that after my surgeries I had when I was 3, might end up being seizures, but i never had seizures, not in 20 years...

 

I'll keep you all posted as soon as i know more myself...

Thanks a lot Hopkins and TL6MT (Dave)

 

@Hop- Yeah, I wish it will be an all clear, but these seizures that I'm getting now, they're a little more than an all-clear...

 

@TL6MT - I'm not really worried about outside life right now, I'm more concerned about my personal life, but yes, I will try to take it easy. :wub:

It wasn't anything that bad, or they would have gotten me into a hospital pronto.

 

I'll find out exactly what's wrong when I see my neurologist tomorrow. Hopefully it won't be anything too bad..

 

:P(Y):P :P :) :) :) :)

Hey there MoM,

 

Sorry I didn't get to this thread sooner! It's good that the news isn't in emergency-state right now; maintain your optimism, stay strong, and never stop growing. I wish you the best and I will send over some positive energy.

 

Love,

Herbert

Thanks a lot, Herby!

 

I'm trying to keep optimistic here about it. It just may something i have to live with, who knows...

 

Oh, and I'm always very strong. I had to be, in my early years, I had Radiation, Chemotherapy, 2 surgeries, etc... I'm fine in that sector :P

Optimism is good - and I am sure you are just fine. :P

 

Why do you have to take a MRI anyway?

Well, 2 reasons....

 

1. I haven't had one for 3 years

 

2. To make sure my brain is in check..

 

I had a Brain Tumor when I was 3 years old...

Update:

 

I met with my neurologist.

 

He says that the MRI was fine, no change :P(Y):P :P

 

But he was saying that the EEG was a bit weird, at times my left lobe of my brain would get active, where the right side wouldn't, and from that, you get an imbalance. :) :) :) :)

 

So, now I have what they call a Partial Seizure, in which it is not a full seizure that affects the whole brain, but affects the left lobe.

 

I now am to take Keppra (KEPP-ra) twice a day for two weeks, then 1 in the morning, 2 at night for 2 weeks, and then 2 at night until gone... (I think that's right, I'm doing this off the top of my head atm)

 

So all-in-all, it's not really as bad as anticipated, but it is still a bit serious.

See, things are better than you expected! Optimism works! Hope it gets better soon though, drugs are usually only temporary unfortunately. Hope you feel all better soon!
