   YES!   Shocked
   Alot of times since the Implant 1/5/10, I don't have an Aura or even remember the Seizure?!   And the Post-Ictal phase takes forever to recover from, I'm dazed for 2-5+ hrs & worn out.   
   I've never had a seizure without an Aura until the VNS implant though!   Shocked
   I'd sooner try any new drug or combo. than go through this surgery I think.   I'd have had better luck.
   Hugs,
