Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question. My latest back surgery was in Dec 2011 and things were going pretty okay, until they weren't with my recovery and I have this acute chronic sciatic pain but MRI didn't show too alarming that would explain why. So my neurosurgeon wants me to try basically up to 3 injections and if they fail to look into the nerv-stim which I'm not too thrilled about. I wear a TENS unit pretty much constantly and don't see any great reviews of the nerv-stim that encourage me to think it would have any better effects.
Anyway, I've heard a bit about Rhizotomy and was thinking about it as maybe a preliminary step to a nerv-stim. I've had injection 1, with no effect, injection 2 is on Thursday and I'm going to ask the anesthesiologist a bit more about this as an option. Has anyone here had the Rhizotomy procedure done? And what effect did you have? How much relief did you have from your nerve pain? Etc.
Any feedback would be appreciated going into my appointment on Thursday.
