I went for my first ever Medial Branch Block on Wednesday and although I was terrified, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. My doctor gave me Valium an hour before and then also a second one as we were starting. We have now scheduled the RFA for later this month and apparently, we’re just doing the Valium again. I’ve read a lot on here and other places where people are knocked out for this and my doctor doesn’t do that. I’m scared at how much more painful this will be than the MBB. I’m also scared of the post-procedure pain as I am on no pain meds and highly doubt I’ll be sent home with anything. Please help calm my nerves!!
