Hi, I had my surgery 1 week ago today, and I can safely say I have had no TN symptoms since. However, the surgery itself wasnt the most pleasant I have even had and the recovery I have been told is 6-8 weeks.
Straight after surgery I had the worse headache I have ever had, but was told this was normal due to the leakage of CF and my brain becoming mushy (consultants words) and needing to sort itself out. After a 4 day stay in hospital I am home, walking around although slowly as still abit light headed and dizzy. Only taking paracetamol and codeine for pain. Surgery was approx 6 hours and have only lost a small amount of my hair.
So if I was asked again would I have the surgery, I might hesitate for a while and didnt like the immediate feeling after surgery, but to not have to worry about when the next pain was going to come or for how long, then the answer would definately be YES.
