    I've been having pain in the lower back area for a whike and they gave me pills at first now they having me to use Fentanyl patches. Now they ask me to think about having my nerves burn.

    I think this is called nerve ablation...I looked at a couple of websites and didn't find much mention of serious side effects. One site called it a 'safe and well-tolerated procedure". Another mentioned temporary back discomfort and temporary leg numbness. This operation destroys sensory nerves that transmit pain - not nerves that help you move your limbs. Sites on the internet emphasize its safety but be sure to carefully discuss this and any other surgical procedures with your physician/surgeon. 


    The procedure generally works for 3-9 months..
