I'm new and have a question about facet rhizotomy that I had done one week ago.
I have read in some very informative posts that it could take quite a few weeks until I can evaluate the results.
What I'm unclear on though is how long the increased pain I'm having might last. What are others' experiences?
My doctor told me I might be in some extra pain above and beyond my regular pain for a 'few days'. Well it's now 7 days, and I'm still in a lot of exacerbated pain - particlarly burning and spasming that extends all the way up my back to my neck at times. It's scary when you don't know if/when it might end.
I had L3 - T10 done, all on the left side.
Many thanks in advance for any responses.
