Hi I'm from canada and I had the surgery 2yrs this august. Unfortunetly it didn't work. I have had it for well over 15yr before I had the surgery I had tried botox and it didn't work. I had the surgery and I was told that the sucess rate was about 98% . I had the surgery and the doctor told my family that by weeks (7days) end the spasms would be gone. They were not!!! It was improved by the surgery about 45%. But as a result of the surgery I have numerous other severe problems. They include severe headaches when laughing,bending,lifting, running exersiceing having a bowel movement or any of the things I took for granted. I was told by the doctor that I was a uniqe individual and that given time the spasms would stop...they have not. i would love to know if any one else has experienced any thing like this and what they are doing to inprove their quality of life.
Thanks for reading
