Numbness 4 months after cervical RF Ablation

I've had many ablations and this time it's not right. It hurt like wow when he did it felt like he was digging a hole. Well here it is 4 months later and the whole left side is still numb and some times more pain than when I got it. I've been trying to do research on why the numbness would last so long. Only thing I find is maybe permanent nerve damage. Does anyone know what might be going on. I am not getting any answers from the doctors office. It's causing problems I never had like I have to lay down with support on my neck to get the pain to go away. Yes I am on pain meds and it's not helping. Any ideas?
