I found this site last week, I am so happy to have found it. I have pars syndrome, L4,L5,S1 spondy with fractures and "black discs", in pain since Nov. I had my 5th epiudal/pars injection today. They work Great for me but don't last longer then 6 weeks. After 2 MRI's, 1 CT, Flex/Ext x-rays, PT reg/aqua, chiro, acupunture and message the Ortho surgeon wants to do a fusion. the Pain Management doc wants to do a "Facet Rhizotomy". I have looked and it and I am very exicited this could help and put off a fusion.
Anyone out there that has had this done could you please give me your story and thoughts how it worked for you.
Thank you in advance!
