I would like to start a discussion where we only hear about positive outcomes, ideas. We need to hear in order to have hope. I do anyway.
After bouts of screaming on the floor in pain, a neurologist put me on anti seisure drugs which made me sick, tired, depressed...ick!
So found a doc in my area that specializes in surgeries for TN. He did a radiofrequency surgery and it went away. I have a numb jaw on one side making it difficult to eat but do I care? I have my life back. I am happy again and raring to do fun things. TN took that all way but now I am alive again.
Bad news...the TN came back and had to go on meds for a week so the doc did another radiosurgery but used stronger measures. Am fine again and planning on it lasting longer this time (hopefully for years) and planning to go on a trip with my husband and grandson. Yay for modern medicine and cool surgeons.
I am also looking into other things to curb the pain if it returns...will report on that as I find things out.
