Wo­man’s seizures eased by op­er­a­tion

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - LOCAL NEWS -

An An­gus wo­man with epilepsy and cere­bral palsy, who used to suf­fer more than 100 seizures a day, has seen the qual­ity of her life im­prove dra­mat­i­cally.

Jackie Kelly’s re­cov­ery came af­ter an op­er­a­tion and help she re­ceived from Lor­raine Mc­Nab, the Quar­ri­ers epilepsy field­worker for cen­tral and south Aberdeen­shire.

Af­ter work­ing with Ms Mc­Nab, Mrs Kelly, 50, was re­ferred to a Quar­ri­ers cen­tre in Glas­gow where staff ad­vised her to have cor­pus cal­loso­tomy surgery.

Fol­low­ing the op­er­a­tion three months ago, Ms Kelly’s seizures have dra­mat­i­cally re­duced.
