I have had injections both sides and RFA on the left 2 months ago. So far the pain is returning. I always have great results from all the procedures and was living a somewhat normal life but so far nothing helps for very long. I am overweight and need to just lose the extra burden on my back but it's hard to do without being able to move much. I hate to go back to the doctor so soon and he has moved so would have to start over with the new one. Seems all I do is go to doctors,I don't have time to work. but don't let my whining discourage you. I only feel so bad now because for a while I did feel so good. Hopefully you will too!View Thread
This is interesting. I didn't even know what that drug was for. My doctor has never suggested it. I am having a radiofrequency ablation on the 15th. I think that is a better option for me anyway but it just shows we are all different and need to be under a doctor's care to to help make the best decisions for usView Thread
