I guess I am nervous and unsure of this next procedure...I just had a PM visit and she now thinks a rhizotomy will help me. She was in and out of the room too fast and I was not clear on which lumbar disk or nerve. She said the other dr who does the steroid injections will do the procedure in 2 stages. 1st step is to inject numbing medication and then come back for the rhizotomy.
I did have surgery years ago for herniated discs, tethered spinal cord with a lipoma in my lumbar area from L2 to L5. I am willing to undergo this procedure but I am not clear if I should see someone beside the other PM dr? I can't help but wonder why I never had this done before as I have severe pain for many years..
Does anyone have any feedback on a rhizotomy? I am a little afraid.... :SS :SS jade
