Hi fellow sufferers of the neck. I had an RFA on C-2 area yesterday. I was suprised by the amount of pain during and after the procedure. It was torture and in my book, completely inhumane. They told me that some people don't even have the conscious sedation (which I had). How can that be? It was so painful that I cried like a baby. Now I'm in pain and MAD! I was not given extra pain meds or stronger pain meds either for the recovery. Am I wrong to be so mad? The three nerve blocks were almost unbearable as well. They should have known that I would have a rough time, don't you think?
