I had my right side RFA to L2-3-4 done yesterday. This time was much easier than the left side.
When they took me back and started the iv, I told them I was very worried about this time as I remember last time and it was terrible. The Dr. said she ordered a special cocktail so I would be more comfortable. It was 5/100...whatever that means.
I talked with them during the procedure and said ow just once. It wasn't terrible pain, it was very tolerable and they said that was the actual burning I was feeling. It didn't take long and I was back in my room. My back was achy and sore but nothing terrible.
I had an hour ride home so by the time I got home, the pain level had went up to about a 6.
I woke up this morning sore but again, nothing unbearable. Resting and icing and feeling ok.
Very happy with this time around...we'll see what happens!
