Hi My name is Jeannie
I was wondering if anyone has had a radiofrequency ablation. I had it done a week ago and I am in more pain now than I was before. All of the muscles in my back are going into spasms. I have constant pain in my lower back and right hip that goes down my leg. If I put any pressure on the injection sites I get what feels like a shocking sensation. I have been off work for almost a year. With it being a work related injury L&I decides when and if I can have treatment. I had to be in pain for 6 months and gone through Physical therapy before they would allow my Dr to do a medial nerve branch block. Which did work for a couple days. The procedure had to be repeated again before L&I would allow my Dr to do the radiofrequency ablation. I really thought the pain would have been a lot less by now.
