Epilepsy Follow-up

After surgery, patients should undergo a comprehensive postoperative evaluation, and physicians will schedule routine follow-up visits to determine if the symptoms have improved or are cured. There may be physical after-effects or emotional changes following surgery which should be discussed with family and the medical team. Physicians may recommend outpatient rehabilitative care, including help to the transition to a seizure-free or almost seizure-free lifestyle with respect to psychological and social adjustment, education, and vocational training.
