hello, there can be relapse of neurocysticercosis if you continue to eat unhygienic food that is if you eat in unheiginic place where there is chance of food and water infection. tape worm infection can be eradicated completely . so please check if there are any fresh lesion in your brain otherwise no need to worry.the chances of getting is very minimal in neurocysticercosis, they usually present as fits but you have been lucky. good luck.
