There is a new blog with the written hands on experience of undergoing deep brain stimulation surgery: Focus on a Cure’s Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Journal
This blog is created in the hopes that my experiences will give others inspiration to take a risk and have the courage to face the unknown in order to accomplish the impossible as others have done for me.
Incredible good insight and information about the whole procedure, especially the whole process before deciding to undergo the procedure.
One thing I was surprised about that after all my research and all my conversations with other DBS patients and doctors no one mentioned the steel ball ear plug portion of the halo/frame procedure. During this portion I asked the surgeon why no one ever mentioned this part he told me it was because most people do not remember it. Well let me be truthful I remember ever second of it and I told him I was going blog about it and let the secret out.
On this blog plenty of posts about the use and indications for Deep Brain Stimulation and on Mind Hacks a short list of things that deep brain stimulation has been used to treat.
