A five-year-old boy who underwent miracle brain surgery has had his life ‘completely turned around’ since the invasive operation almost two years ago.
Thomas Cotton, from Great Whelnetham, was suffering seizures every 30 seconds after being diagnosed with rare neurological syndrome Rasmussen’s Encephalitis.
In September 2012, Thomas underwent a hemispherectomy to disconnect the left side of his brain and put an end to his two-year ordeal.
His father James, 36, said following months of rehabilitation Thomas has had his life turned around.
“He is our little marvel,” he said.
“It is like being reborn for him.
“Thomas has gone from having no life at all to doing everything that every other child can do.
