I am 10 months post op for ACDF C6/7 and I have been having horrible muscle spasms throughout my upper back & shoulder region. I went to pain management today & this guy did a test procedure where he injected a numbing medicine in my nerve that goes through the left side of my upper back/shoulder. He said if it help the pain I am having (and it did) then I am a candadate for a procedure where he will go in & freeze the nerve.
After all I have been through in the past 2 years (two fusions..L4/5 & C6/7) I am surprised I have never heard of this before..
I would appreciate any feedback
