In 1996 I had two grand mal seizures and was diagnosed as epileptic and took depacote 2000mg per day for 2 years. I could not function and ask to work myself off it. October 2005 I started my road of severe surgeries.Both knees replaced in one year. two years ago I had my right hip replaced and March 2012 I had reverse rotor cup surgery on my left shoulder for replacement. I went through seizures prior and after the last surgery but am currently only on carblevadopa and vitamins plus meloxicam. My treatment is exercise, rest, limited stress and limited hard drugs. I was being over medicated.
I am very much my own person who has become tough to survive. I continue to educate myself and use that education to fit MY DISEASES.
