I have a question. My ex wife is considering Nerve Decompression Surgery for our 16 year old daughter who has had a Chronic Migraine for almost two years. She has been to MHNI, Cincinnati Childrens and now seeing a new Neruologist and getting massages, and going to a Chiropractor. I have done my research and what I have discovered is that most of the evidence for this is ancedotal at best. The studies done on this are small, and scientifically flawed. The Neurologist community and Headache Specialists are very skeptical. It is not even an option at places like the Mayo Clinic or Johns Hopkins.
So my question is has anyone had this surgery and does it work? I am an engineer by training and before I offer to shell out a large sum of money on a maybe I need information as this seems like snake oil to me.
