    Unhappy Radio Frequency Neurotomy Questions

    I had radio frequency neurotomy 4 weeks ago and I am in worse pain than before I had it done. I am really disappointed. Had it in left lumbar spine. Has anyone had this done and not had a successful outcome? So bummed!Still a bit hopeful but thinking I will not have the right side done now.

    Re: Radio Frequency Neurotomy Questions

    Welcome to the board. Sorry your procedure has not worked thus far. Sometimes it needs to be repeated before results are noticeable. Also, speaking from the experience of four lumbar surgeries, sometimes the level that is treated is not actually the level that is causing your pain...despite what MRI, testing and surgeonís experience indicates!

    I think many people have had an unsuccessful outcome with a rhizotomy. It has a fairly low statistical success rate.

    Good luck to you!
