DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION

Recommended Posts

My understanding is it always works but your progression continues

anyway lol I think 10 yrs is about right

It really worked for me but recovery from the surgery is major when they say 3-6 months they mean 3-6 months but 

for me it meant no more pills or dyskinesia just get up and go again

There is also a book called DBS a patient guide written by Sierra Farris I highly recommend reading prior to DBS which can be found on Amazon
