Mayo Clinic, Minnesotabeen there? Epilepsy Foundation

Adjusting to the seizures has been hard, to say the least. I'm headed to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota in just a couple weeks for my seizure disorder.

I began looking online last night for button up pajama's =).

They say I will be there 3-7 business days and they will take me off of my anti-zeisure medication so that I have seizures. Has anyone been there? Can you give me some information on it? I've read the information they sent me and the stuff on their website, but am a little apprehensive as I don't really know how it all works and what they'll do. What if I still don't have seizures, has anyone experienced this? Also, can people stay with you for overnight tests?.
