I had my MVD on 12 December 2016.
It removed my type 1 TN pain but I am still left with type 2 TN pain, which is constant.
My neurosurgeon prescribed strong painkillers and told me that, in case I would still have pain next month, I had two options: a rhizotomy or a lidocaine infusion.
Now, I don’t like the idea of further damaging my nerve, so I think I’ll go with the lidocaine infusion.
Has anyone tried this? Any longlasting results or only temporary relief?
Do you think this post MVD pain is only temporary?
I am taking heaps of vit B12 in an attempt to repair the myelin sheath around the nerve… whilst hoping the pain will simply go away over the coming months.
Any experience with post MVD pain? Did it go away after a couple of months?
