DBS: actual experiences

I am official caregiver along with VA Homebased team of my beloved husband of 53 years. My husband was diagnosed 5 years ago and is now 77 years young. We would like to hear of the DBS journey of PD patients AND of their caregivers. We have many questions: ease of insertion and maintenance? Recuperation following procedure? Impact on specific PD symptoms?… your kind response is greatly appreciated

  1. Hello, I’m sorry that we didn’t see your inquiry until now. I’m sorry that you and your husband have been thru so much. Here at, we support each other as Person with Parkinson’s and their care partners like myself. I assisted my father with PD for many years. Here is an article I hope you find useful:

    Please let us know if we help you in any other way. All the best, Suzanne Troy, patient leader
