My friend has been diagnosed with Atypical TN, and she is contemplating MVD as you can see the nerve being compressed on the MRI - so hopefully the surgery will stop the pain.

However, thanks to the pain she isn't employed and has no insurance. So we're looking for funding advice. Currently based in England, but desperately wants to go to USA for surgery.

So has anyone here received help for the funding of such an operation? The cost of the op is about 70,000 US dollars - but if something goes wrong... we know it will be much more than that.

If anyone has any advice for finding funding - or has received funding themselves, please get in touch!
