Rhizotomy for coccyx pain

Nov 06, 2018 1:26 PM

Anyone had Rhizotomy? I had it two weeks ago and these last five days my pain has been horrendous. No matter what pain killers I take they hardly touch the pain. It’s really getting me down as I can’t really do much as it’s so painful. I believe the pain can get worse before it improves but just wondering if anyone can tell me how they’ve been after Rhizotomy?

Warning and question. Have you read your MRI reports? If There are cysts on your nerve roots having anything like nerve burning done will only make it worse.

I've never had this although my doc mentioned it for C2 last year, which is causing cervicogenic headaches. If you have it done I pray you have very good results for a long time. Hugs love and prayers! 🙂❤🌼🌼
