Well, I had my RFA series on the SI joints a few weeks ago. The RFA for the Lumbar was back in February. This has left me *mostly* pain free. I just have some mild pain from a disc that's bulging, but it's totally tolerable most of the time if I do my PT exercises and use the proper posture. So, off the pain meds I went! That part never gets easier, I wean off over several days and have some other prescriptions to lessen the withdrawals, but it still takes a lot out of me.
Knowing my history with the RFA procedures, the lumbar should start kicking back in almost exactly 9 months from the RFA, which puts it in just about 2+ months. I'll take it
(does that reset my "chronic pain" timer? LOL)
