Hi every body,
do you have any experience with Gamma-knife for trigeminal neuralgia?
I am suffering TN for many years my doctors suggest gamma-knife but I’m afraid, please tell me if any body has this experience.
Thank you

I had a nerve block for trigeminal neuralgia some 17 years ago. I was able to reduce the medication a lot but not completely. I was very grateful, it’s the worst pain in the world. Good luck.
