I'm not sure, but have you had an EEG to check for abnormal activity? It's not unusual to still have seizures after surgery due to remaining hemosiderin and scar tissue from surgery. Perhaps what you are describing is a partial seizure or something. I'd ask the doctors and try to get an EEG.
Best wishes.
Diagnosed September '09 with one CM centered in the right insular cortex/basal ganglia. Saw many, many doctors and had surgery 12/10/10 with Dr. Spetzler. I am thrilled to have this bleeding thing out of my head even though I suffered a stroke during surgery. Have had/ continue to make an amazing recovery. http://www.thankfulforeveryday.blogspot.com

Are you on anticonvulsants, in the care of a neurologist & have you had an EEG to check for seizure activity :?:
The description of "weird feelings" reminds me of when I used to have what's known as "aura's" http://www.epilepsy.com/epilepsy/auras - more like a 'prelude' to a seizure, but mine never went beyond the weird feelings.
Definitely let your neuro know of your symptoms.
Best wishes,
Multiple CMs throughout my brain. I have had 4 bleeds requiring surgery between 1987 and 2010. Locations of craniotomies have been: L. parietal, R. parietal, L. temporal and R. thalamus.
