Prior to any seizures, Rouse practiced law. However, after bashing his head on a bookcase, he gradually developed epilepsy. Over several years, his epilepsy progressively increased from several seizures a month to several times a day. Dr. Kurukumbi identified that the seizures were coming from the right side of his brain. Dr. Leiphart, epilepsy neurosurgeon at Inova dissected the affected area and completed the surgery. To this day, Rouse only has to take one AED and is seizure-free.
If anyone is interested, there is an epilepsy support group at Inova in Falls Church, VA the 2nd Tuesday of every month.
