one year and six months after surgery for the DBS

Recommended Posts

  It has been one and a half year since I received my surgery to implant two electros in my brain for the DBS system. At first I was scared ,

the idea of someone doing this to me made me very nervous. The morning of the surgery ,I was told that they were going to do my operation with me fully awake.  I was very glad I had it done and so far It is helping me very much. Without it I  can not walk at all. The voltage range is only 2.8 & 3.8. Higher for my right side because it is the side that is affected the most. The only problem I have now is speech. I have to talk slow.  If anyone is considering DBS, it is worth it.
