Hi, guys....haven't posted since this time last year when I did a trial for a nerve stimulator device (which drove me nuts.) Well, here we are close to *20* facet joint injections later and still have significant pain. Pain MD wants to do a Rhizotomy procedure this week, and if that doesn't work he say's the hardware needs to come out (from L4-S1 fusion in 2008.) So my question is has anyone had their hardware removed and did it relieve any pain??
