"Enjoy life as it's worth living for"

About: Aberdeen Royal Infirmary / Neurology (Brain, Spinal and Nerves) Ninewells Hospital / Neurology

(as the patient),

About 8 yrs ago i was asked about getting surgery to help clear my epilepsy which i've had since i was born with a non maliginant growth in my head .i had a fit while driving but luckily only car damaged and not me. by gosh i was lucky . On several types of tablets and not even 16 tablets sorted it. so ninewells i went to and the op i went for . During my pregnancy i was great for 7 months but a month early my son arrived and i had several bad fits. so the chance of the op i went for it and somehow no fears i had made my mind up . luckily my op has been a big success . and i'm more confident and enjoy life to the full. my sense of smell increased.

Response from Anne Marie Walsh, Clinical Quality Facilitator, Quality, Governance and Risk Unit, NHS Grampian

I can see you shared your experience on Patient Opinion some time ago. Thank you for taking the time to post your story. I am sorry to hear of the health issues that you have had since birth. However, congratulations on the baby boy you had a few years ago. I am pleased to hear that his birth persuaded you to have the operation that has turned your life around.

We have only recently started working with Patient Opinion so please accept our apologies in not getting back to you at the time. If you have any further feedback about the experience you described please get in touch.

We are keen to listen to stories of patients and carers and, going forward, we plan to respond quickly to all stories we are alerted to from now on.

Best wishes
