I had an MVD dpne by Dr Janetta 24 years ago and it restored my quality of life. My main symptom was motion sickness so bad that by the time I got dressed in the morning, I felt like throwing up to the point that all I could do was ie perfectly still with eyes closed until the dramamine took effect. Then I would have to start moving so I didn't fall asleep. I would have about 3 hoirs till the cycle repeated. This was at the culmonation of 14years of increasing illness. A tough way of life for the mother of 5 including a very activw 3 year old. We live in Arizona and had to travel to Pittsburg because Dr Janetta was the only Dr doing this surgery. Since the surgery I have ben free of the problem and having suffered severe motion sickness I can now read or do handwork in the car (on a straight rpad )View Thread
