My neurologist broached the subject of DBS surgery for the first time last visit. My wearing off periods are getting longer and I do get some pretty bad tremors during those times. I have a few friends who have had the surgery. One has had problems with infection and they have replaced his wires a couple of times. One had difficulty adjusting his device. I only know of one person who said they were completely satisfied with their outcomes.
If you have had DBS, I would appreciate hearing about your experience. Were you happy with your outcome? Did you have any problems with infections? Were you able to eliminate or decrease dosages of medications? What was surgical recovery like?
Thanks for any information you can provide.
