Hi everyone. I had my MVD operation in February. It went well and has left me free
of the trigeminal pain. However I now get a different sort of pain which seems
odd but I wondered if anyone else had experienced it and to find out if it goes away
In the morning when I wake up I have a really tight pain above my ear. It's above
the scar. It doesn't matter which side I sleep on. It's even there if I have slept on
my back. It's really uncomfortable and makes me wary of moving my head too
quickly. It wears off when I am up and moving but it often comes back during
the day, especially if I've been wearing my glasses to read.
Since the operation I've also developed a hissing noise in my ears that
I didn't have before. I've got used to it now but wondered if this is common and
again does it go away in time?
Please don't be put off having the operation. After 5 years of living hell it has
given me back my life. If it ever comes back and I was offered a MVD I
wouldn't hesitate having it again. What I am experiencing now is nothing like
the pain I was in before it.
