Bilateral Trigeminal Neuralgia

Posted , 2 users are following.

Has anyone had MVD for bilateral TN? I have it on both sides. I am wondering how long I might need to wait between having the procedure for each side. My neurosurgical consult said about 4 weeks. Is that really long enough? I am trying to plan the time off from work.

      Thank you for your response. It does whatever it wants. Lol. Pain on just one side. Or pain in one spot on one side and on a different spot on the other side. I'm even more frustrated now because I was scheduled to have the first surgery in May. But the governor of my state has ordered all elective surgeries cancelled until further notice .
