I am having a repeat RFA in two days for SI joint pain and I'm panicking. I had two done four months ago in a different state and the doctor was wonderful. She used Propofol and I was out like a light. I don't remember a thing. The pain was worse for three days and then magically it disappeared. Now, four months later it has returned and we have moved to Chicago. It's a new doctor that says I can't be out for the procedure, only sedated. I'm scared. No, I'm panicking. I am very afraid of pain and needles. I'm afraid of the procedure and I'm afraid that I'm going to have a panic attack and embarrass myself. I have two year old twins and I'm struggling to manage them so the procedure must be done. I don't know how to get through this. Can anyone offer advice, help, encouragement, anything to calm me down and help get me in that door and on the table? Thank you so much. I can tolerate the pain after the procedure but I'm absolutely terrified of the pain from the procedure itself.
