At age 82 i received the gamma knife treatment at Wash. U in St Louis for trigeminal neuralgia on the right side of my face. it worked well with no side effects but pain returned after five years. A year after pain returned I received the cyberknife treatment at Stanford U ( July 2017) with pain diminishing after six weeks. ( wonderful experience with Dr. Chang and staff) After about a year my face became numb and right eye dryer than usual. The worst is my mouth fills with saliva faster than I swallow and hinders my speaking. And the droll runs down my face. Has anyone experienced these types side effects? However the best is there is no pain so will live through these nuances! I should mention 1200 Neurotin did diminish the pain before and after the surgery! Thanks , Thomas!
