I just went through 24 spinal injections for 4 lumbar vertebrae on both sides. The first 16 were two sets of 8 injections to " test" whether I was a good candidate. I definitely felt relief until the anesthetic wore off. Then I had the actual ablation. My pain is no better, maybe even worse. Does anyone know what went wrong and if I have other options. I am a 70 year old woman with 16 grandchildren and I still have lots of living to do, but this pain makes everything very difficult.
