Well it has now been nearly 3 weeks since I had an MVD. How do I feel, just great. I currently have NO TN pain what so ever. I was in hospital for 4 days, awoke after the operation feeling just marvellous, a bit sore where the cut was but simple analgesics handle that very well. Had the 26 staples removed after 10 days, no fuss what ever.
Currently slowly reducing over 7 weeks the drugs I was on to hopefully no drugs at all, time will certainly tell that. Based on what I know now I would not hesitate having the operation, but, I would be very fussy about the neurosurgeon I chose to open up my head. My surgeon has done over 250 operation's with no serious side effects at all. I live near Melbourne, Australia and we only have a small population, therefore not as many specialist's in this field as in the USA.
That's All, Chris
