Salman Khan recounts his battle with intense pain

While his latest release Bodyguard was smashing box office records in India, Salman Khan was in the US undergoing a non-invasive operation for Trigeminal Neuralgia, the neurological disorder that has troubled him for years.

Speaking to Star News after the operation, the superstar opened up about the disease and why he kept it secret for years.

“The problem started while I was working on Partner (2007). A part of my forehead used to pain, as if somebody had applied electric shock in the area. Gradually the pain extended to my cheek and then throughout the filming of Veer my right jaw pained,” Salman said.

Recounting further, Salman added: “The pain disappeared sometime back, but for the past one-and-a-half years it gave me lot of trouble, especially while shooting the climax action scenes of Bodyguard in Patiala. I thought of going to the doctor, I already knew it was Trigeminal Neuralgia.”

Two days before the release of Bodyguard, Salman left for the US for the surgery. However, before that he did not reveal his disorder to his fans.

“I did not want people to know about the surgery as my fans get worried, but the news spread and everybody got concerned about how serious the ailment was,” Salman said.

Though Salman knew about his Trigeminal Neuralgia, he came to know of two more ailments that troubled him after the angiogram.

“When I got the angiogram done, we came to know that there were two more problems besides Trigeminal Neuralgia -one is AV malformation (abnormal connection between the arteries and veins) and the other is aneurism (bulge in a blood vessel).

“That's when we found the best of doctors, came to America. They were supposed to do an invasive surgery, but they said that invasive surgery is not required. We got done a laser surgery called Gamma Knife,” said Salman.

Talking about the surgery, Salman added: “The surgery was good, they had told me it would be for half-an-hour only, but it lasted 8 hours. The entire procedure took that much time and it was good that it lasted for so long as they could conduct it with patience...The pain might go in six months or it may take three to four years, it depends. I will have to come back again for check-up.”
