Hi! Just joined today and wondering if anyone has had success with VNS Therapy for their kids. Dayne was bitten by a mosquito in 2001 and contracted encephalitis. He had a seizure at 18 months old, which clued us into the encephalitis, but was seizure free until he was four and a half. We have tried many different medications to control his seizures, but the side effects are awful and he still has small seizures. His neuro suggested VNS therapy.......any feedback??
