I am 33 years old and had a L4/L5 fusion Sept 2017. After my fusion, I immediately started to notice SI Joint pain, and was diagnosed as having SI Joint Dysfunction. I've since had MRIs and they show nothing out of the ordinary, which is frustrating. Anyway, after physical therapy, chiropractor, consult with an orthopedic specialist, my doctor performed Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) on the right 4/30, and left 5/7. I was wondering when i might start feeling some relief.
I think it was performed on the L5 Dorsal Ramus, S1, S2, and S3.
I have conflicting sensations right now - I feel numb in some regards, but also an increase in pain in other regards.
I am just so ready to feel some improvement. Dealing with depression and I think a big part of it is always being in pain.
