Its been awhile since I was last on this site, but was hoping someone in here might give me some advice.
I suffer from l4-l5 back pain. I have had two nerve blocks done. The first one lasted maybe a month and the second one not even a full day. My worst pain is usually at night when I sleep since I seem to be pressing on a nerve. This past Friday I underwent a fact rhizatomy(sp) only to find out that I am still in night time pain. They said it could take up 10 14 days for it to work so maybe I'm expecting miracles.
I guess what I really want to know is, if this procedure fails what is the next step. I know this procedure can be repeated, but what's the point. The pain has to be steaming from somewhere. Any suggestions????
