DBS - Experiences?

Hi everyone,

If anybody is able to help me out with this it would be very much appreciated. I am a university student working on a project about Deep Brain Stimulation and people's experiences with it. It would be amazing if anyone could give me some insight into their experience, e.g.

  • how they decided to have DBS
  • when they had it
  • their experience with the whole procedure - assessment, surgery, follow-ups
  • how much DBS has helped them (or not)
  • if they have experienced any side effects
  • if they would recommend it
  • anything else that may be relevant!

Thankyou so much in advance! big grin
