HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern her seizure is not because of the disease called Grand mal or Pitit mal syndrome but the seizure of your wife could be because of the brain disease for that she had been operated (You have not mentioned for what she was operated ) if I would know her brain problem then I would suggest anything without knowing the disease how one can suggest the medicines hope you can understand this, take care.
I find this answer helpful
