Back procedure tommorrow

Thursday, August 22, 2013

I'm having a Radiofrequency ablation tomorrow for my back pain. I recently had 2 medial branch blocks as diagnostic procedures to see if radiofrequency ablation would help me. The medial branch block gave me short term relief from my back pain both times I had it done. This is their sign that radiofrequency ablation will most likely help, 80-85% chance that it will. The nerves in that area of my back will melt away over the course of the next few weeks after they use electrical charges on the nerves in my back. I'm nervous but hopeful that this will work.
