RFA wearing off

Hi everyone!

I had a RFA of my right SI joint in October. I can't really speak to exactly how much pain relief I got from it because if have several other issues going on, but i do think i got some. It seems that this nerves are starting to regenerate and cause me a decent amount of pain in the process. Does anyone know how long that will last? This hurts a lot more than my SI joint hurt in the first place.

Thanks for any insight!


  • RFA usually lasts several months, and in some, up to a year, but it really depends on the condition and how quickly those nerve fibers regenerate.
    It might be worthwhile contacing your pm doctor about getting it done again, if you believe that it helped the first time and it is wearing off.
