I have been suffering from TN for 5 years. The medicine is just about useless at this point so I finally met with a neurosurgeon and he's agreed to do the MVD surgery. He wasn't thrilled about operating on a 24 year old but I haven't eaten in almost 4 days so it's pretty bad. I'm not sure it's ever been as bad as it is right now. Has anyone else had this surgery done? How was your results and what was the recovery time like? I'm so nervous to have this done. He said there is an 80% chance that it'll work and he's done well over 100 of these surgeries. I'm so worried he's going to open me up and not find anything on that nerve. I'm not sure what I'll do if the surgery doesn't work. It's one of my last options. I just need some advice from fellow people with TN. Thanks for any helpful advice!
