The TMJA recently received an e-mail from a TMJ patient who would like to hear from others who have had post TMJ surgical side effects. We would like to open this blog for discussion and encourage you to share your experiences.
"Has anyone experienced trigeminal neuralgia caused by bilateral surgery? I was told a potential surgical side effect could be facial movement limitations, but never trigeminal neuralgia pain, facial swelling that does not go away - and it has been 3 months already. The doctor can't give me a timeframe - just you have to wait."
