I don't know how to spell that.
anyways, I need some help from my fellow spinies. My wife has had three facet injections in her neck to relieve her horrible headaches. They seem to help her for about six months, then she needs another shot.
The pain doctor recommended that she have a ryzotomy shot to numb the nerves and eliminate the pain. Now, my questions are:
1. has anyone here had this done?
2. Did it help?
3. Isn't this just masking the underlying problem and keeping her body from telling her that something is wrong?
4. Is this nerve numbing permanent?
I tried to search this but only found those that had it done in their back. I haven't found anything that explains the long term ramifications of this procedure. If anyone has any info, I would certainly appreciate it.
