I had radio frequency for arthritis in 5 levels of my back. That was 3 years ago, procedure is not pain ful if you have a good doctor. I am 3 years out still no pain. I recommend this to anyone with arthritis in back.

No I haven't, but I wish you the best results. Keep us posted how you do. I'll keep you in my prayers that it goes as well for you as it did for Beachlover. 🙏🌼

I do not know how to do private message, but the RFL (radio frequency lesioning) on my sacroiliac joint on both sides and it definitely helped. I had nerve pain that was so severe it made me swell in areas on left side of my genitalia. Since having it done that pain and swelling went completely away. I had some major numbness around my tailbone, but definitely tolerable compared to the pain. I had my pain management physician put me in twilight in an outpatient surgery center to do the procedure because I was scared to have it done awake and in his office.

Saphire, what levels did they do for you? I just had my second set of facet joint injections and hoping to ask about the radiofrequency at the end of January. Hate living with this, but unfortunately my injury is permanent.

Sorry, that question was directed towards beach lover. Sorry sapphire.
