A personal account of my dealings with progressive multiple sclerosis. And my battle with trigeminal neuralgia and the brain surgery that stopped the pain!

About the MVD surgery I had in 06

This seemed to be a little easier than the surgery I had.. but it was the same one. (my anatomy was somehow different so it took 5 1/2 hrs) But it was successful for me. In fact I've seen Dr. Casey speak at the TNA national conference in Michigan. Dr. Peter Konrad at Vanderbilt did my surgery.

  1. Very interesting. Is it a common side effect of MS, or another condition entirely?
