I didn't understand when your surgery was (not sure what "post op mvd @ y was" means). I think some people do have numbness in the cheek following an mvd. You might read up on Ella's journal about her surgery and search for comments from others here (I think that thread is at the top of this forum). Always a good idea to tell your doctor about the symptoms and see what he thinks. Does headache medication take away that pain? I know I had headaches after my surgery three years ago. I don't think they lasted more than a week. Everyone is different, though. I hope you have had relief from the TN pain!
