stroke then trigeminal neuralgia

I had a stroke in Feb 2008, right side couldn't walk or swallow, pretty much got better except for weakness on right side walking and numbness in face.  In June 2008 had lots of face pain all the time and was told in July 2008 that my trigeminal nerve was injured with the stoke and I now had trigeminal neuralgia.  I am on so much medicine for high blood pressure, high cholestrol, blood thinners, and trying medicines to control the pain (4 now) that I wonder what it's doing to my insides.  I don't think I am a candidate for any surgeries due to the stoke.  I am only 58 and wonder what my chances are.  Would love to hear any comments or ideas.
