My biggest fear is getting into a medical argument with you, thats pointless. No-one gets cured, but theres no other way.
So we risk it. ok.
My father is a maxillo facial surgeon among the other things mentioned. He dealt extensively with this vein (is actually an artery)for many years before he strated making breakthroughs in the line of first tension headaches, then migraines, and now clusters.
I'll try and keep it short and sweet. You have many veins that supply these areas and you can cut them or block them off with no repercusions. These procedures are performed safely for many other things.
To cut the vein that causes cluster is a difficult surgical procedure. To Block it off is not. Its like a car Bob, there's a part thats broken and you dont need that part, you've got lots just in case.
