What's taking so long? RNS went through about a decade of studies. Plastic water containers with carcinogens get approved quickly but not a medical device known to help the disabled.

I feel the same way day by day I go to goggle to look for FDA updates and sante a few years ago when my doctor gave me the news that I was a candidate for the sante due to my uncontrollable epilepsy being in several spots of my brain I been investigating this I even emailed my doctor on a few days after march 15th.. when I learned of the pre-approval with the FDA my doctor found out from me that it was pre-approved. the FDA board should approve it because more and move epileptic are getting hurt by seizures and bad med which are causing suicide. the FDA should approve neuropace and sante faster.

I'm waiting and waiting for some help also,I'm
excited about the help the device might give me. It's taking to long for sure and I agree that the
FDA is not realizing the need it because yes (forsure)we could also hurt ourselves and die just
as fast as a breast cancer person could.

What's taking so long for the Neuropace to be approved?!!!!!!!!!

My purpose for the neuropace is so the seizures are controlled so I can drive. Not driving in my area is like being in a PRISON!
