My father had undergone deep brain stimulation surgery for Parkinson's six months ago. I have been visiting his neurosurgeon to fine tune the stimulation. There have been significant changes post surgery. But, his speech is slurred when movements are alright and when speech is fine, his movements become unresponsive. Yesterday while he was sleeping, he was unconscious for half an hour. The doctors confirmed it was epilepsy. But, all the tests were normal. His family has no history of epilepsy. What would you make of this?

Thanks for your reply. Is there any specific reason associated with it? Since every test turned out to be normal, we are unsure. Also, can this be treated completely or would this occur again? He is taking Levipil 500 right now. What do you think?
