PATIENT UNDERGONE DBS FOR DEPRESSION
“Everything is going very well. I started working 3 weeks ago, it is going well. I am getting into a routine and it is a lot easier now, compared to when I was unwell. It’s good being able to work and to be able to support myself. I am now doing everything I used to do before I fell ill [work, church, friends, exercise, beach and motorbikes] which is amazing and I feel pretty much completely better. I am more than happy to do so because DBS has changed my life. I want people who were in my situation to hear that DBS is a treatment for depression and that it is possible to get. I was lucky that I found out about the treatment 2 years ago on the internet. Because if I had not found it myself, I still would probably not have heard about it, let alone had the surgery. Thanks again to you and all your team for all your help.
