Re: Should I be concerned?
So sorry Cindy that you weren't warned that your pain may increase after RF..I had the RF last May...and was amazed about the increase in pain...I called my Drs. office several times to let them know about this increase...they said it was the nerves dying back & they kept telling me..wait 10 days...then 15 then 20 then 30...it will settle down.. It finally did settle down for me ..... after 30 days... I thought something was very wrong, because the papers the DRs. gave me said I should start feeling better within a week or so...I was disappointed to say the least. Then again, I was told that sometimes the RF doesn't work..because the nerve hides out in a groove in the bone..really...at that point I was like sure... I do hope that your pain settles down...and that the steroids they injected at the time of the RF kick in and help calm everything down for you..
