Dustin has had seizures since he was 4. we have always gone to neurologists and he has been on medicine. He has done several things along with medicine and sometimes without medicines. To name a few Blood Type Diet, Essential Oils, Chiropractic, Raindrop Sessions, Cranial work, massages, Holistic medicine, pro wave sessions, Dustin was having seizures once a week starting this year(2016) off and BAD headaches after a few calls and talks with his Neurologists she said Dustin needs more and I can not help him anymore. She also told us that every time a medicine is added your chances of it helping cuts in half. Over the years Dustin has been on many different Seizure medicine. The neurologist said he needs to go to the EM Unit and see a specialist Neurologist She recommended Henry Ford, Detroit, Campus. Dustin spent a week at the hospital in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and then had many other test to go thru. In Sept they told us that his seizures are all on the Left side and that he was a surgical candidate. Dustin gave it some thought we went and seen the Neuro Surgeon and She also said he was a good candidate and that he had to do "Phase II"
Dustin is schedule for "Phase 2" which means on Nov 3rd they will open up his scalp, scull, and membrane go to his brain and put electrodes on it. Then they'll put everything back and bandages him up and he'll stay at the hospital til he has seizures so that they can map them and find out EXACTLY where the seizures are coming from. When they find it and it is not a crucial part they will take him to surgery again and remove that spot spend a few more days in the hospital then home for recovery.
