Epilepsy has been in my family for many years.My father,myself, my son and niece. Mine are controlled by medication. My niece,age 43 still has them. Up to 2 yrs ago my son, then 35,had them every day,some partial and some grand mal, which beganb when he was 18. Two years ago he wen to London Neurological Hospital for tests to see if he could be helped. After many visits and tests i different hospitals, he was referred for an operation toi take away the part of brain that was the cause. They cut the part of brain away, then a year later fitted him with a titanium plate. In the two years since the op he has been seizure free, so I say to you all, don't give up as you never know,the next one might be you. Good luck to all
