So I went to see a neurosurgeon at Vanderbilt today and I walked away sick to my stomach.... He believes I have the trigeminal neuralgia (really??) but I have some other things going on, numbness in my face and such that he's not sure about. He believes it's the Trigeminal and I had Bells Palsy 2 years ago and that this is causing the numbness in my face and such. He didn't not see the nerve being compressed, but wants to open up my head and take a looksey basically. This way he can really see what is going on in there. If I have a damaged nerve, he won't be able to see that and he also won't be able to help me. So, I don't know what do to. If you have the surgery, you have all the problems that come with it, plus maybe hearing loss and because of my Bells Palsy, he said with them going in there it may make it flare up again. But if I do nothing, how will I ever know? So, any words of wisdom, or stories from your previous surgeries would be of great help.
Thanks to you all

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
