What causes pain and swelling in brain stem after a microvascular decompression?
I am sorry for the symptoms you are suffering
Unfortunately sometimes surgery isn't successful but this dosn't mean that there is no more hope
Second surgery isn't reccomended without trying oral therapy.
You should contact your neurologist and start using carbamazepine (till 1000 mg slowly increasing the dose)
Vascular neuralgia needs low blood pressure to avoid attacks.
I need you are suffering but there is still hope with the right medications and in my opinion you should avoid surgery as long as possible.
Hope my answer will help you
Don't hesitate to contact me for further questions

unfortunately second surgery has higher risk for complication.
Second side effects of tegretol can be dominated with the use of an pain killer
In my opinion you should start tegretol and wait for at least two months, if no effects are seen then second surgery it's to be done
Hope you will fine with tegretol
