Kels had the VNS placed yesterday. Today she is very, very sore and in a lot of discomfort. Just last week our neuro called to see about placing her on a clinical trial for a new drug, but since she is nearly 18 I had to let her help make the call. You see, she couldn't have the VNS AND do the trial at the same time. Her decision was to have the VNS; she KNOWS that this is going to work for her. And I pray to God that it does.
