Hi there, I just got back from the doctor after having a facet rhizotomy (radio frequency ablation) and I'm wondering how much pain is normal. I had my left side done from C6-3 and I'm hurting really badly. I should mention that about 7 months ago I had ACDF C5/6. So when they burned the nerves around that area it was the most sensitive. But this is hurting a lot more than I thought it would and I'm wondering how long this lasted in your experience. I'm also wondering if it got worse in the following days and what day was the worst for the pain (I started at about a 5 and I'm at a 8/9 now). Thanks!!!
