Thanks. I am scheduled for Radio Frequency ablation on Nov. 15. I hope and pray it will help. 24/7 pain in the 8-9range is really depressing and disheartening. My PM doctor estimates 70% chance of relief. Do you agree?View Thread
I have had 2 ESIs with little to no relief. Last week, a medial block at C3-4 .4-5. 5-6.6-7 was tried. also minimal relief for 24-36 hours. Any hope or must I submit to surgery for relief? 24/7 pain in the 8 - 9 area is intolerable.View Thread
