Nerve Decompression Surgery for chronic daily headaches & chronic migraines: I have suffered from migraines since 1994. They have incr over time & I was close to dying after a Basilar Artery Migraine caused me to have a cardiac arrest. Needless to say...I have tried everything anti depressants, anti seizure, pain meds, muscle relaxants, centrally acting muscle relaxants, Botox, nerve ablation, in hospital treatments 4-6 months out of the year, & nerve blocks. I was at the lowest point in my life & was desperate. Mon 4/14/14, I had nerve decompression surgery to my occipital & trigeminal nerves. The surgery was 4hrs and recovery has been good & bad days. Today so post-op day 7. I have a small incision above my left ear & a 2 inch incision with staples at the base of my skull. Other than incision pain and tightness, I haven't had any migraine pain!!! For others desperate to have a life again, to be a mom again, and to be a living person. Please make an appointment with Dr Mark Khorsandi, www.migrainereliefcenter.com. IT CHANGED MY LIFE. you don't realize how much you've lost until it all starts to come back!
