thoracic rfa

2 weeks after my 3 level thoracic rfa and it's really kicking in. My lumbar pain is much less and I am able to stand and walk. Did left side. Going in for the right side on Thursday. Very pleased with the results.



  • Hi jimandjr

    Very good to read about your reduction in pain and ability to stand and walk.

    Good luck on Thursday with the right side.

    Really happy for you with your improvements.

    Take care

    Thanks, AJ. A neighbor trapped me into a long standing discussion today. My lumbar pain went off the charts. Had to exit that situation. I think I need to be moving or I am screwed. Been trapped in long lines at the store and that can set me off too. I avoid walmart and stick to my local, more expensive, store but hardly ever any lines.
