FYI, my friend just finished up her visit to the Mayo Clinic today (they had a cancellation and were able to see her sooner than Christmas!) and they are talking about doing this surgery:

Update on Deep Brain Stimulation at Mayo Clinic

It's experimental surgery when done for trigeminal neuralgia, but they have had some success with it, and the doc she saw thinks she is a good candidate for the surgery. They also WAY upped her meds, although they don't seem to be helping.
