Hi all

I am glad I have found this site & hopefully I can get some advice on these injections I now have received twice. I am scheduled on 10-20-08 for a Rhizotomy & so far what I have read has not been good. Please help. :/


  • I have had tremendous results from rhizotomy! If your pain is coming from your facet joints I think that this is the best thing that you can do for yourself! Will you be awake during your procedure?
  • Welcome to spine-health,the rhizotomy worked for me,you have to give it time,it wil take about a month before you will feel better after you have it done,i was sedated but not compleatly out,i was still awake,but i didnt feel anything....

  • ">image Welcome to the forum! We are so glad that you have found your way here. I had rhizotomies done about five years ago and had great results with them. It didn't last a long time for me, but while I was feeling the relief, it was heaven!
