Ok I did have my lower back facets done 3 injections and than the ablation. I do not want anymore steriods so if the cervical facet injectons work do they do the ablation or do you have to do the three shots. I know after my injections on Fri the nurse said she will see me in 2 weeks for the ablation. I call the Dr. tomorrow but, just wanted to see what you have all done.


  • I had the block and then a week or so later had the ablation. No steroid injections in between.

  • Talked to the Dr's nurse today and she emailed the Dr. and he says he has to see me in the office to go over the abalation. $50 is what it will cost. THe nurse said I should try another injection and than make the choice. SO, off I go on Fri. one week after the first one. I thought they wait 2 weeks. 8}
