I did not answer some of the questions because my case does not cover this. My DBS surgery was very successful. I thank God for Vanderbilt hospital, for Dr. Neimat, for Dr. Hedera and Ms. Auronda Lewers who were all responsible for my good recovery. Basically, I do not take any medication for the central brain tremor.
