    THE TRUTH IS THESE PROCEEDURE’S ARE VERY DANGEROUS AND OFTEN TIMES LEAVE THE PATIENT WORSE OFF THEN THEY WERE.
    PARALYZED ON THE SIDE OF THE SURGERY IS JUST ONE SIDE EFFECT.
    THESE ‘PAD’S’ THEY USE TO LIFT THE NERVE HAVE BEEN MADE OUT OF TEFLON[DUH] AND HAVE TURNED TO SAND IN THE PERSON’S BRAIN. IF YOU CAN IMAGINE THE PAINFUL DEATH THAT IS. THESE ‘PAD’S’ WERE SUPPOSE TO BE TAKEN OFF THE MARKET IN 1992, AFTER TESTIMONY FROM VICITM’S (LIKE BRAVE MRS. HIGHTOWER)BEFORE CONGRESS, PEOPLE ON GURNIE’S THERE TO SAVE PEOPLE LIKE US, FROM MONEY MAKING SCEMES WITH NO TRUE INTEREST IN THE CLIENT.
    THESE ‘TECHNIQUES,’ IF PEOPLE WOULD BE HONEST, OFTEN FAIL BECAUSE THEY JUST DON’T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT THIS DEBILATING DISEASE… THEY DON’T TELL YOU THE NERVE CAN AND OFTEN DOES GROW BACK~! HENCE, MORE PAIN AND OFTEN A DISORDER CALLED ANESTHIA DOLOROSA, WHICH MAKES THE FACE FEEL LIKE WOOD AND MORE PAIN. AS BAD AS ALL THAT IS; ADD THE FIGHT FOR CHRONIC PAIN MANAGEMENT TO THE TOP OF THE LIST AS VICITM’S OFTEN HAVE TO BEG FOR PAIN MEDICATION’S. AN INSULT TO ANYONE’S INTELLIGENCE! DENYING THE PATIENT THE ONE LESS EVASIVE TREATMENT THAT MAY HELP.
    COMPLICATING MATTER’S THIS DISEASE IS INVISABLE TO THE PUBLIC EYE. YET HAS BEEN RECORDED SINCE THE TIME OF CLEOPATRA. ANYONE WHO SUFFER’S FROM TN SHOULD WIN AN EMMY AS WE ACT OUR WAY THROUGH EACH DAY.
    A LONG TIME AGO A VERY ASTUTE DOCTOR FROM THE NIH TOLD ME TO PROMISE HIM I WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING IRREVERSIBLE….AFTER TEN YEAR’S OF SUICIDAL PAIN, (THAT THEY WOULD NOT ALLOW A DOG TO LIVE WITH!) I FOUND A TRUE PAIN SPECIALIST WHO TREATED ME WITH DIFFERENT MEDICATIONS TILL WE FOUND METHADONE HELPED. METHADONE WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED TO TREAT PAIN… NOT DRUG ADDICT’S, AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT DISEASE. A LOT OF FALSE INFORMATION ON METHADONE HAS SCARED THE PUBLIC. YET THE COST IS MINUTE AND I’M NOT CRIPPLED ON THE SIDE OF THE SURGERY LIKE MANY VICTIM’S OF THIS SURGERY, WHO OFTEN FALL DOWN BREAKING LIMB’S, TRYING TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR SMALL CHILDREN, WITH LITTLE TO NO HELP FROM FEARFUL OFTEN ANNOYED FRIEND’S AND FAMILY WHO ACTUALLY SEEM TO MAKE MATTER’S WORSE BY DESERTING US. OFTEN TIMES AFTER CONVINCING THE PERSON TO GO AND HAVE ONE OF THESE SURGERIES WITH THE THOUGHT PROCESS THAT YOU CAN’T BE ANY WORSE OFF. NOT TRUE! THEN THEY FEEL GUILTY AND BLAME THEMSELVES… WHEN THE BLAME LIES ON THESE SURGEON’S. YOU WOULD THINK AFTER DESTRYING ONE LIFE THAT THESE SURGERIES WOULD BE ILLEGAL…DOING MORE HARM, STRIPPING THEM OF THEIR OATH OF DO NO MORE HARM. DENTIST’S PULLING TEETH …BECAUSE THEY OF ALL PEOPLE, HAVE LITTLE TO NO TRAINING IN TN.
    RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH! EDUCATION IS KEY, SURGERY TO ANY PART OF THE BRAIN OR SPINAL CORD TYPICALLY ONLY BRING’S SURPRISES….NOT ONLY FOR THE SURGEON, BUT THE NOW POOR CRIPPLED VICTIM THAT CAN NO LONGER EVEN ADVOCATE FOR THEMSELVES! LEAVING THE PATIENT WORSE OFF THEN TO BEGIN WITH. FRIEND’S AND FAMILY FALL AWAY, BECAUSE IT IS TOO PAINFUL TO WATCH. IT IS NO WONDER THEY CALL TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA THE SUICIDE DISEASE. AT THE VERY LEAST INSTEAD OF GIVING US DROOPING EYES AND WOODEN FACES, TREAT US WITH DIGNITY AND MEDICATION UNTIL YOU HAVE NO PROBLEN OPERATING ON YOUR OWN SON OR DAUGHTER, IN THIS MANNER.
    AT A RECENT CONFERENCE OF BACK SURGEON’S, A SURVEY WAS PASSED AROUND AS TO WHICH SURGERY… IF ANY, WOULD THEY ALLOW DONE ON THEMSELVES. OUT OF 350 SURGEONS, ONE…JUST ONE? SAID THEY MIGHT TRY ONE OF THE LESS EVASIVE SURGERY’S. WHAT DOES THAT SAY FOR OUR INTELLIGENT SECTOR. MONEY MONEY MONEY.
    I’M LEARY OF SO CALLED ‘FAMOUS DOCTOR’S….’ THAT WANT CASH UP FRONT,ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU FIND OUT THEY ARE RECIEVING FUND’S FROM OUR TAX POCKET’S… THROUGH GRANT MONIES! MAYBE THE MONEY WOULD BE BETTER SPENT ON INVESTIGATING THESE SO CALLED FAMOUS SURGEON’S,THE FDA FOR ALLOWING CERTAIN DEVICES, LIKE STENT’S, VAGUS NERVE IMPLANT’S FOR DEPRESSION AND THE USE OF THESE PADS, THEY MAKE SOUND SO INNOCENT. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO TEACHING AND IMPLEMENTING ‘ETHIC’S FOR THE PROFESSIONAL,’ SEEM’S NON-EXSISTENT FOR A COURSE THAT IS MANDATED FOR DOCTOR’S EVERY 2 YEARS? WE NEED THE TRUTH AND PROPER CARE IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE INNOCENT INCLUDING OUR CHILDREN, WHO THEY CALL HUMAN BEING’S. KNOWLEDGE IS NECESSARY! FIND A SUPPORT GROUP…MAYBE START AT MASS. GENERAL HOSPITAL, WITH OTHER VICITM’S OF THIS CRUEL DISEASE.
