anyone have nerve decompression surgery?

Post  susan99 on Mon 07 May 2012, 7:54 pm

hi all,

i have a consultation appointment for occipital nerve decompression surgery tomorrow. wonder if any of you have had it, and how you are doing?

also is there anything you would suggest or recommend to ask the doctor, from your experience, that you might not have thought of before? and are there any aspects of the surgery to be aware of?

my neuro says i'm a candidate for it. i have chronic all the time head pain and migraines.

thanks all!

best,
susan

No, Susan, I never have. I hope the appointment goes well for you, though.
Good luck, sweetie!

I haven't had occipital, but I've had lumbar and cubital nerve decompression surgeries. I'll try to answer any questions you've got, but my and your stories maybe completely different.

Susan, what did you find out? My brother has occipital nueralgia which is really awful. He is never pain free and often incapacitated. I'd love to find something that would help him.
