FORT WORTH (CBS11) – For seven years no one could figure out why Damian Wells would fly into fits of rage out of the blue.  

For years doctors prescribed medicine to try and manage what they though were mood disorders or syndromes, but in 2012, it got worse.

“He would throw things, he would scream, he would hit things, he would cuss,” his mother Patricia said.

“I remember my 9th grade, I was having it really bad, I got put in a class by myself pretty much, cause they said i was dangerous to other kids,” said Damian.

But a little more than a year ago, with his family out of options, their angel walked through the door at Cook Children’s Medical Center in the form of Dr. Scott Perry.

“Dr. Perry immediately looked at my son and said, ‘that boy is having a seizure’,” she said. “We finally had someone who was looking at my son and was telling him, this is not your fault.”

The fault was at the front of his brain.  It was discovered with rods inserted into Damian’s head.

“They were directly into the brain, into the area I thought the place where the seizures were coming from,” said Dr. Perry.

Finally in September 2015, after surgery, the seizures stopped.

“I feel normal now,” said Damian.”
