I posted recently looking for info on this procedure. Well, I had it done. Here’s my take:
So I just thought I’d share, the latest procedure I underwent, the partial sensory rhizotomy, was life changing! I no longer have pain on the left side of my face! And minimal numbness due to a new technique used to monitor and cut only the nerve roots that transmit pain to the face. I did have a complication, the plate got infected, but that was treated quickly and I’m fine now. I’d do it again in a heartbeat! Next summer the right side will be done. Then bye bye TN (at least for a while).
I know there are a lot of bad stories on this procedure, so I wanted to out my good experience.
