Re: does burning the nerves help soft tissue pain

Congrats BMM, its great when someone has success with a procedure.
I'm curious are you off all your meds? All of your problems must have been coming from nerve pain.
John I'm not sure everyone who has the ablation done can go off all meds as the nerves do grow back & I imagine your problems would have to be all nerve related. I have nerve, muscle & now my PM believes problems stemming from scar tissue from the fusion. Ive met those who had great success & those who had none & claimed to have more pain. I'm curious to see how it goes for you Aframe.

If I had more success from the ESIs then I'd opt for the ablation. I have some but not enough to be assured with ablation. My only concern with ablation would be scar tissue.
Good luck Aframe & enjoy you success BMM, Sammy
