Six months after my 2nd gamma knife I developed double vision. I also started having nerve pain from hip to toe in my right leg. That was back in 1993 and I still have those problems.
Prisms do not help me. I just do the best I can.
This is a burning sensation that is always there but it gets worse at times, especially at night. I was on tegretol for 4 years but it didn't help at all. I've also tried neurontin. This didn't help either. I'm now taking Lyrica as needed. It makes my vision more difficult and it leaves me kind of groggy so I only take it at night and don't plan any driving the next morning. I'm not really sure if it helps or not.
If you've had either one of these problems after your Gamma Knife, were you able to find any relief or improvement with any medication or treatment?
