I am supposed to go have a Nerve Block at L5-S1. Iam scheduled to have a Nerve Block at L5-S1 Nov. 1st. I have already had an MRI and seen a Dr at the Spine Center. He has already said he will do a Lamenectomy now if I wish.
The Pain Clinic I have been going to for years for another reason wants me to have a Nerve Block but I have heard they are extremely painful, and also its not going to fix the issue for good.
Can anyone here tell me how Painful a Nerve Block is at L5-S1? Iam trying to decide weather to go ahead and have the laminectomy the Spine Surgeon has offered after looking at my MRI, or if I should try the Nerve Block first.
I have been having bad pain all the way down my right leg from the end of my spine.
I have heard the Nerve Block will be very painful. Someone tell me if it is very Painful. I want to know before I decide.
