Is balloon compression a permanent solution for trigeminal neuralgia?
Balloon compression is not always a permanent solution, but it can provide pain relief for a significant period, often months to several years. The duration of pain relief varies from patient to patient.
What is the recovery process like after balloon compression?
The recovery period is relatively short for most patients. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or facial numbness, which typically resolves within a few days to weeks. Pain relief may occur immediately after the procedure or take a few days to manifest.
