How long can a postictal state last?

  1. 0 I have a friend who is epileptic and recently had 6 seizures while at the hospital on 6/26/10. The doctor is telling me that his confusion, diorientation and postural instability is a result of being in a postictal state. The longest time frame that I can find where someone has symptoms related post seizure is only up to a week. It has been at least 45 days. I think I am getting inaccurate information. Anyone have an answer to how log a postictal state can last?

    Thank you!

    All seizures outcomes are different. It would be a good idea to consult a Medical Doctor for resourceful information. We are not allowed to give medical advice on this forum.

    Your concerns need to be discussed with the medic in charge of your friends care as already mentioned we are unable to offer medical advise here
