    in St Joseph, MO |
    Dr. Wilkinson performed deep brain stimulation surgery on my husband 12/2013. When my husband woke from the surgery the next day his speech and ability to walk was compromised. I said something is wrong. He is talking like my mother after her stroke. Dr said they did a CT right after the surgery and everything was fine. Symptoms would resolve over time. To make a long story short, 4 months later my husband fell and his his head. A CT a brainbleed from the fall and evidence of an old one.
