I had DBS May 6, 2013. I would do it again today. Without a no doubt the best medical decision I have ever made. DBS is still doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing. Private message me if you want more information.

@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member, I have had DBS. Had it done in October 2019. Took me a year to get the perfect setting for me. Many of my symptoms went away but still dealing with extreme fatigue in the afternoon which I can live with and work around. I am really surprised I went for the procedure, I am so chicken about things like that, don't even like removing a splinter! And being awake during the process is not my cup of tea. But I am proud of myself for going through with it. If you have any questions about the procedure, I would be glad to answer them for you. Bean
