  1. Neuropsychological Exam

    DBS prescreening is quite unnerving. I took the cognitive exam last week (5hrs!) and though I never felt that I had any cognitive issues whatsoever, I have given this segment more concern than any of the others. I hope that these tests will not be the deciding factor. I think I misunderstood the instructions for one of the test because meds were wearing off! Also, the visit with the Physical Therapist also was an eyeopener. I have learned that all the endless activity here at home is not really exercise. Taking 5 or 6 trips to the basement carrying full laundry baskets is not exercise...grocery shopping....weekly house cleaning etc. I hope that I will be a candidate for DBS, but I must find a way to move forward if I'm not. Hopefully there are some new meds that would work well.
