I had radiofrequency ablation/rhizotomy on the left side, L1-L5 a week ago last Thursday. It was fine for a few days, although my left leg was a little numb- I didn't know whether to attribute it to that or random other stuff going on right now (I'm a mess these days).
But last week I developed a severe pain around L5 on the left side radiating down through my tailbone. I'm thinking it's probably some sort of neuritis from the rhizotomy.
I am really annoyed right now because it seems like I'm in some sort of black hole in which whatever sort of 1% complication exists, I will get. Grumble.
