I have had two recent medial branch blocks in preparation for my first RF Ablation. After my 2nd medial branch block diagnostic, I have noticed a decreased level of pain that has continued for several weeks now. I thought the medial branch blocks were very temporary. I had 4 injections on each side of my spine. Has anyone else experienced this? The RF is my last hope before I have to consider surgery and they won't do a fusion of 4 vertebrae because it would make me very immobile. I am hoping this means the RF Ablation will work wonders! Thanks for any feedback.
