[FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Hi Robochick,
Many thanks for your reply & for your helpful tips, much appreciated.
May I ask if you are receiving this treatment under the NHS, & if so which health authority you fall under? My consultant is uncertain if the Herts authority will cover this procedure, because it is so new in this country.
Right now, I'm waiting to go in hospital at the end of March when he is going to try & 'stun' the sciatic nerve in one leg: a nerve root block provided only very short term relief (about 2 weeks) & apparently the nerve is too large to be 'killed' so he is going to zap it into not working! Then he'll be waiting to see how I respond to that before moving on to treating the pain in my lower back.
There are days when I think this pain will never end!
Good luck with your next procedure - I hope it works better for you this time. Would you mind letting me know how it goes? I'd be very interested.
