I have my 1st Rhizotomy tomorrow. I have spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, and 2 slipped discs in my back in the L4-L5 discs. It has been getting worse and worse, I can't walk for more than 3 min, can't stand for more than 5 min. I've tried 3 cortisone shots, a lumbar facet injection and those didn't work. I had medial branch block and the 4 hours of relief was amazing. So the next step is a rhizotomy, does anyone have any advice. Will it hurt for a while? Any suggestions? Did the Rhizotomy work for you?
