I recently had 2 nerve blocks done and they didn't work or at least they didn't work for very long(few days). I then went in to have RF (nerve burn) done. Last Thursday I went in to have it done on left leg to start with. I was told I would be sore for about 5 days after the procedure. Well, that never happened. They prescribed me 10 percocets for the pain. There was never any pain after. I dont know what to think now. Did the doc do it right?...is one thought. My second thought is to have them do it over again before going to the next leg. My x-ray show some bulging at the L4,L5 but they insist on doing the S1 area. I know that the nerves associated with leg pain stems from the S1 area. It's just that everything seems exactly the same before they started all of these procedures. Right now, I just want both nerves to be burned so good I don't feel any pain after healing from the procedure. This has been going on for 3 years now. I'm also a "cash patient", meaning no insurance. I need help and help fast. I know....consult with my doctor. Every doc I have been to wants to do their own thing and I'm searching for the one who does the right thing. I live in the Memphis area.
