Hi I am 63 male and was told that I had PD in 2010 after my body shut down. After finding what was wrong I was put on meds like all of us , the side effects became as bad as my PD. So I went in for a DBS , it is not an easy operation , put it has completly changed my life. I went from taking pills every two hours to maintain to only 4 times a day. I hope that this will help those of you that are on the fence about DBS.
