I had my first mvd 4 years ago and have been for the most part pain free. I had minor pain here and there until 3 months when it started back at full force. Most recently I was in the er this week and they secured me a surgeon appointment on Monday. They said they will be able to get me in as early as next week for surgery if that’s the direction they decide to take. First I have a 3 part MRI tomorrow. They say this new mri can tell them if something is being compressed. Has anyone had success in seeing this with this MRI? Has anyone had a second MVD? What were the results? Any and all advice and stories are more than welcome! I am desperate for pain relief and cannot wait to get to Monday.
