I was diagnosed with Oligoastrocytoma grade II in the right temporal lobe a little over 12 years ago and I was on at least a half a dozen meds including tegratol, Keppra, and Depakote. I had surgery about five years ago and the surgery affect my short term memory. Over the past five years seizures are here and there but a lot less than they were before the surgery. My short term memory is awful though, sometimes very frustrating. I'm able to work and drive but always need a phone on me to remind me of things including where I park my car and who I was out with that day. I forget a lot of small things but all in all I think of my self being very lucky and happy that I have most of my long term memory. I was wondering if anyone else has this issue and see what they do to remember important things. Any input will help and I thank you for your time.
