Hello Anonymous,

You can certainly schedule a consultation with another ENT surgeon to get a second opinion.

I am confused by your question.

Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain.

Balloon sinuplasty is a procedure ENT surgeons use for the treatment of blocked sinuses.

Balloon compression is a procedure ENT surgeons use to damage the trigeminal nerve and block pain signals.

Maybe you need to ask your ENT surgeon exactly what procedure is planned.
