Hi! people I want suggestions at medical condition of my father. Which is>>>>
He started feeling a pain in about 2004. The pain is unbearable it is a shock which rises from upper right molars and follows through the right side of his head till backside of head.
We contacted a neurosurgeon and he said it is two veins which touch each-other causing this terrible shock pain. He said the solution was an operation in which he'd cut the veins which are causing disturbance; but also he said it is not guaranteed that the pain will never arise again also there could come some other problem too like paralysis of some body-parts.
Due to risk we didn't go for operation but we found a dentist who injected alcohol type injection in the molars (dad got his upper right molar remoed a long time ago) of my dad and then dad didn't feel the pain for about one year. But after a year again he started feeling the same pain once again we went for the injection and again it worked for about one year and the same thing happened three to four times but about four to five months ago once again he started feeling the pain severe and once again we went for injection but it didn't work this time for a year and a week or two weeks ago once again my dad started feeling the same pain and once again we got him injected the same but this time the injection would work no more and pain won't go away.
Now the only option we are left with is operation which is a too high risk, anything could happen.
So what do we do now? the injections don't work now.
Should we go for operation or is there another way?
Please tell me with whatever good you can.
Thanks in anticipation.
Possibility of an exposed root canal should be looked into. This can cause excruciating pain after the molars are removed and the socket has exposed nerve endings.
Arthritis of upper jaw, temperomandibular joint disorders, and abscess in the tooth socket are other possibilities.
Please discuss these possibilities with your father’s dentist. If any of these causes are identified, then they can be treated. Otherwise only your neurosurgeon can explain how risky is the surgery. Take care!
