Good luck Gus, hope things go well for you
Thinking of you.
Do you stop taking your long-acting medication before your appointment? The sort that take days to wash out from your system.
I had my DBS operation in March 2015. I had an assessment after one year. I had not been taking long-acting medication so the question of stopping taking them never arose. I now take Seligilene that is supposed to take 14 days or so to wash out.
My DBS results have been disappointing. My wife does not think it has made a difference.
However, I am very pleased that it has helped you so much. I hope it continues to do so.
sorry To hear that, how about going in an trying some more settings,took me a while to get it right i think i went about 6 times in my 1st year
Best of luck, Gus.
