Hi,

My son, Paul is considering having a procedure to which his neurologist has recommended he NOT have done. He is a 31 yr old family man, working in a family business.

I am having a hard time supporting his decision. 

His injury happened when he was 16. 

5 yrs ago he developed a seizure disorder. (~ hereditary vs concussions [hockey player]).

Any helpful comments are welcome and appreciated!

Thanks,
Priscilla

Hi Priscilla,

I'd have to try and fill in the blanks but...
The surgery is purely cosmetic, so he's not happy with how part of him looks?
Generally most consultants try and avoid any unnecessary surgeries as they always carry a risk.
BUT if it's really effecting his confidence and happiness then something needs doing, perhaps he could try some sort of support group or counselling before committing to surgery?

The annual TBPI meeting is this summer (first weekend of August but I'd have to check that), it can be a real positive eye opener to people suffering this injury, maybe that could be a first step if he hasn't made any contact with other similar people in the long time he's been living with this?

Good luck, and not knowing your circumstances he may very well need your support whatever choice he makes :(

Phill

Check out seeing a Neural therapist. Check out The Barral Institute and find a therapist with the appropriate education i.e. Neural therapy, and call them and talk. The skull and the brain can be healed, you don't always have to cut or drug.

I used to be a therapist before my BPI. I did acupuncture massage, cranial sacral therapy, osteopathy, etc. The plates of the skull and the whole nervous system pulses. Everything moves and pulses slowly and rhythmically, unperceptably and when parts of this system is in dysfunction or spasms, plates can be restricted by muscle spasms or tension, etc, the system can cause seizures. Relax the neck, and the muscles of the skull, restore circulation etc. and when the plates and brain tissue have proper nutrition and function the seizures should be less. My experience. Osteopathy, the study of manual hands on therapy of body tissue is what Jesus talked about. "and you shall be able to do greater things than this", or something like that. I'm a witness. I have taken a client and in 20 minutes with no more force than the weight of a coin, have levelled ears more than half an inch out, eyes level. Tension in the neck, skull and brain can cause spasms. seriously.
