Jun 27, 2019 6:39 PM

Hi everyone I found out in my chart that I have , I asked my dr what procedure I will be getting turns out to be this, Radio Frequency Abliation on my back. He will chat to me about it July 17more.
But what Iโ€™m wondering is have any of you had this done? If so did it really help?
Iโ€™m look ๐Ÿ‘€ around on you tube and reading on it and getting mixed messages about it ? and get worried about it more ....
He did say though I can be put to sleep for it . Should I be worried about it all ?Or just go and see about it the 17?
Hmm ๐Ÿค” .. not sure yet....

Oh Iโ€™m not sure yet if itโ€™s the surgery or injection one yet ? Shore

Shore, I've not had it although my Ortho surgeon has mentioned doing it to my C2 facets, due to my cervicogenic headaches, when/if we go back in to fix the pseudoarthrosis areas in my neck. But many in the community have had success with it over the past several years. Hopefully one of them will see this and be able to answer your concerns. Hugs love & prayers for a good weekend!๐Ÿ™‚โค๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒผ

I've had it done to my lower back and neck. It worked great on my lower back. My neck not so much but everyone is different. I was numbed very good for it. They did one side of my back then a week later the other side. My doctor then decided she wanted to go deeper on my right side as ot hurts worse. I was knocked out for that. It has lasted about a year. Over all a good experience.
