I was diagnoised with trigeminal neuralgia 12 years ago,I tried all the meds there were to no avail so i decided to have the MVD operation. The doctor cut and took out 60% of my nerve. The pain was worst than ever. I than had a nerve removed over my left eye and was pain free for 18 months and then the pain returned. After this I had the GAMMA KNIFE which did nothing. I am now in pain every day...
