I thought that some of you may enjoy reading my wife Gilly's blog that she has created about our experiences with TN and what it has taught her about life. She has received a lot of feedback from friends and family about how much it has impacted them so she is now disseminating it more widely. I had an MVD 4 months ago after having been admitted to hospital following a hideously unsuccessful rhizotomy. I had a long recovery, still tired, but have been pain free for the last three weeks. Hopefully that will continue.
