TF ESI later this month

My dr is giving me an ESI TF L5 on the 25th. I have been looking for info on it. I had one last year prior to my fusion in January. That one gave me the dreaded leak and spinal headache. At least this dr doesnt let leaks go on for weeks like the anesth. did last time. It took my appt to neuro that ordered it last time to get it fixed immediately. His front desk had kept telling me to call the anes. that did it w/ issues. I visited them , was given more meds and told to go home and lay back down prior to neuro getting it fixed.
I also had a spinal headache 3wks after my fusion and also a pocket of fluid at my incision that caused me another hospital night stay.
He says the TF is to help correct the nerve causing me pain, tingling and numbness going down my legs. The left is worse, just like it was before surgery. I am gonna ask the back board if anyone has any info too. I just want the pain to go away.
He says this will fix it and that its not a med issue. We will see and I hope so.
Anyone had any luck with this relieving pain? I also have fibro too so i just want some relief as I keep knots from that when I try to do normal house cleaning and such, or stressed, which I kind of stay that way.
