So I go for my SI RFA on Wednesday. It's my first one in the SI joint, not my first RFA though, I've had several cervical, so I know how they work in general.
Saying that though, I am a little nervous about getting this done! I've had the SI injections done twice, and they did cause quite a bit of post-pain after, is it the same with the RFA? Of course, I know everyone is different. Just looking for everyone's experiences I guess, and any advice you might have for after for comfort and pain relief. Any input is appreciated, and horror stories as well, don't hold back so I know what to possibly expect, lol. I did have one bad experience with a cervical RFA, ended up with a bad case of neuralgia that lasted for about 5 months, it was very painful, so I do know the consequences, but is it different for the lower back? Thanks!
