Re: Pain doc wants to burn a nerve in my lumbar to prevent pain

Its called a rhizotomy what your doctor wants you to get, i had it done a year ago and it helped me alot, i'm having it done again in a month because some of the pain is back and my deductible is met and i don't want to miss out on this, its expensive but i was able to go to work the next day with just being a bit sore. i laid on my stomache and they had a iv on me and i was out and they did the nerve block, i guess it can take several times to really get the nerve all burned so i'm all for it, good luck
