I'm not new to the forums,just my first time posting.
Abit of history...6 yrs ago had first back surgery.Laminectomy at L5S1.
4 yrs ago had my second back surgery at L5S1.I had rods/screws and a plate put in.
Here's my problem[actually even before my last surgery]
I was working cleaning houses.One day i bent down and felt a "click" or "catch"
and thought i wasn't going to be able to stand back up.
I ended up needing to stop working.Almost a year later,i had surgery.[plate.screws and rods inserted]
I no longer feel that catch or click i referred to but have been on a merry go round ever since with what i have referred to as a bruised feeling on my lower rgt side.If someone pokes me in a certain spot[later told this was my SI joint]
I would grab their hand and almost jump to the ceiling!
I recently had my 2nd SI joint.I have been laying off the pain meds so i could actually see if the shots are working or not.
I'm AMAZED at the results so far...I haven't been able to go w/out a pain pill for a few hours, in years!
Here is my question.I would like to know how many people here have had the Radio Frequency Abiation done to stop SI joint pain?Has it worked for you and about how long does it last?
My doctor said if the 2nd injection worked,this would be the next step.
