Ouch, Kevin, that is hard to hear. I'm pretty sure that rule only holds if you have already had a seizure, not if your doctor told you that "you might have a seizure" I had my google alerts set to epileptic car crash, epileptic arrest, epileptic charged, seizure car crash, seizure criminal etc for the past year waiting to see what would show up in the news for those situations. The only thing that showed up was cases where people were on a ton of drugs and used the "epilepsy" condition as a defense. There was one case of a guy who was convicted for not taking his seizure meds and driving a commercial truck into a crowd of shoppers when he had a seizure. Whatever you do, don't mention your name or condition to the DMV or your insurance company, and make sure your doctor documents in your record that you have not had a seizure yet. Plenty of people on here have been through WBR and not had a seizure. Unless you still have a large tumor that has not been dealt with yet, which may cause you to need to be careful, go ahead and drive. The only thing I would probably play on the safe side is to let your wife drive your son.
Take care and if all else fails, riding your bike and taking public transportation can be a challenge, but it will still be interesting.
