i'm hoping for some information about DBS from someone who has first hand experience of it.
My consultant has referred me to the national neurology center in london as thinks i am a suitable patient and that i need dbs.
it will involve a flight every time i have to go there.
if anyone can has had dbs there can you tell me the pratical things that might be useful to me. for example
how many visits you made before surgery?
how long did they last?
what was the timescale between initial referral and surgery?
do they do the surgery all at once or in stages?
whats it like on the ward?
how long were you in hospital?
how long until you can drive/work after surgery?
did it hurt??
did it work?
if you had to decide over again knowing what you know now would you still have dbs?
basically any tips/advice appreciated
