I have had the decompression and gamma knife procedures done a year apart from each other. The dr is now saying maybe try the radiofrequency or the rhizotomy. Any suggestions? Nothing seems to work for me.
I'm so sorry the surgeries haven't worked :( Are you seeing a neurologist who specializes in TN? If not, I'd suggest changing to one. I had to fire one neuro and now have a new one who I'm happy with, but I also had a consult with Dr. Michael Linsky in Irvine, California. He's a board member of the TN Association and an expert in the field, and as I live in Ireland, there aren't any TN 'experts' here! I also see people on the various FB support groups talking about docs in other parts of the US (don't know where you are?), but the TN Assoc would be a good place to start if that's the road you wanted to go down. Best of luck to you.
