HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The other Experts and I are working on your answer. By the way, it would help us to know:

tell me what kind of seizures you have?

where or by whom will the vagal nerve stimulator be done?

how many seizures do you currently have a day or week, and what happens when you have a seizure?

Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.

i have grande mel & petti mel , i have no warnings when a seizure is about to happen. i think it would take place at brighton.uk. petti mel every day,seizures 2 per month,were as i was having maybe 1,2 every 3 to 5 years. when i have a fit i fall to ground thrash about,this lasts about 10-20 secs,when i come round i have no recollation of whats happened and spend rest of day in a bit of a daze (this is all that my husband has told me)
