Good Morning to 'Neverendingfun'!
I have degenerative disc disease. About 12 yrs. ago I had a surgery called a "Rhizotomy". It was outpatient. I don't know if this is the same or just a bit similar to the Radio tactic nerve Block. What this supposedly did was to burn off the nerve endings so that there would be no feeling from those 'said' nerve endings. Drawbacks? 1. Very painful while needle is going in between my discs and burning the ends off of my nerves. 2. It only lasts for as long as it takes for the nerve endings to 'grow back'. Anywhere from months to a few years. Mine lasted about a year. (Maybe 9 months or so.)
What problem(s) or disease(s) do you have that is causing your pain? My problems stem from rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, a Rectocele Hernia and a Vaginal Hernia, TMJ, Seizures, IBS, Asthma. Hope all goes well for you. I still have to take pain meds, blood pressure pills,hormones, seizure med, inhaler.
If you need someone to talk to ,, contact me. Good Luck and I hope I helped somewhat. Don't be nervous. God will look after you. God Bless,
