Topic Clarification of DBS - Months Later! Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

By Witsend On 2015.02.23 00:17
Hi everyone,
I haven't been here in months, since placing my husband in an Alzheimer's Care home.

I remember that months back I posted about how my husband's dementia worsened severely after DBS, so we had to consider it a failed surgery.

Another member stated that her husband did very well with the DBS. I should have stressed that my husband had Postural Instability and Gait impairment rather than tremor-dominant PD. For those with severe tremors, BDS can be a lifesaver. It is not believed to be as effective in the type of PD my husband had.

Thanks for allowing me to clarify!
Joni
