My husband with Parkinson’s got this week the best news ever. He got approved for DBS.
He is beyond elated, but realizes all the risk, which, he is willing to take. I am cautiously optimistic, but, I just envision our lives before or rather at beg of PD, we ignored the disease, apart from taking meds or seeing neurologist on regular basis.
DBS can potentially reverse PD 10 to 15 years, in other words we go to the beginning and then it start progressing again, yes, the disease will not go away.
All the extensive tests showed he is as heathy otherwise as very healthy 30 years old.
All cognitive tests, extensively detailed he passed with 100%.
Any comments, experience with this procedure or knowledge, or criticism of DBS would be appreciated.
