Dear Surendra,
Thanks for choosing Health Care Magic. I suggest you get a detailed evaluation including an EEG and MRI and consult a neurologist asap to know your treatment plan. Immediate onset seizures, those that occur immediately or in the first few hours after a brain injury, do not suggest a chronic seizure disorder. Early onset seizures and those which develop within the first 7-8 days after trauma require prophylaxis for up to one year.
Please get a detailed evaluation. Though Post traumatic seizures are thought to resolve on their own we should defenitely be looking at a detailed work up and evalution to manage the situation at hand.
Do let us know the results.
All the best
Regards
