rfa

I am considering the Rfa procedure for my lower back and am wanting any and all comments good or bad from anyone who has had this done and what I can expect before during and after it and if it has helped you with your pain. I feel like a live pin cushion and have had at the most 10 days of relief from countless procedures. And this one has been advised but not yet discussed by my pain management dr. yet. I have had some horrible experiences in the past and don't want any more repeats. Thank y'all.

Re: rfa

Welcome to the board. You might want to make this inquiry on another board where many people with lumbar issues read and post -- it is called the "Back Problems" board -- just scroll up to the "B"s and you'll find us.

What issues do you have and at which level? Ablation is appropriate for some issues and can provide relief from a few weeks to a year or even longer in about 80% of patients who try it.

I've had several lumbar surgeries and many injections and nerve blocks, but never this procedure, but I'm pretty sure there are some people on the back board who have had it.
