  1. Newest DBS system st Jude's

    Hi i have the same device
  2. Infinity DBS system - issue

    Although I had this symptomatic relief the disease seems to be progressing and has worsen with the side affects of the medication. Freezing and Dyskinesia was one of the major side affect of the medication which was disabling my social interactions and professional life. The doctor’s advised for the STN DBS for getting back to the stable state means where we will have minimal fluctuations of the ON/OFF state. The doctors assured that I will make a remarkable change after the surgery. Surprisingly we are not able to achieve the expected result from DBS surgery and even if we get the result we were not able to sustain the outcome for a day or two. Currently at 4 doses of sinemet and 2 doses of CR along with left side voltage 4 and right side 3.Even then we are not able sustain the results.
