Facial questions
« on: January 23, 2007, 09:21:15 pm »
Hey guys.

I had an MRI on Monday to see what's going on with my face.  The right side of my face still feels like someone hit me and I get shocks every time I eat and actually any other time.  My doctor said it was either the beginnings of trigeminal neuralgia or the tumor is bleeding into itself and causing pressure on my facial nerve.  I hate waiting for the results--I just want an answer.  I'm just about four years post GK and I really don't want to deal with this stuff anymore--like all of us.  Ofcourse the first thing I think is the tumor is back. Has something like this happened to anyone else?  Has anyone heard of the tumor bleeding into itself? My doctor said that if this is the start of trigeminal neuralgia I could get drugs--more drugs, but he didn't mention what would happen if it was the tumor bleeding into itself. I'm just confused and worried. Thanks for listening.
