Upcoming VNS Adjustment Appointment

On Friday I will be going in for another appointment with my neurologist, Dr. Dean. My current VNS settings are:
Pulse Width: 250
Frequency: 20 Hz
Off Time: 1.8 minutes
On Time: 30 Seconds
Current: 0.75 mAmps

The Cyberonics VNS has definitly had a positive impact on my number of seizures. It has taken quite a while to get the settings to an optimal level, but I feel pretty satisfied with them now. I don't intend to change anything besides the current of the magnet activation setting. I have it at .75 mAmps. I want to boost that to 1.0 mAmps.
