Has anyone had a Radiofrequency ablation for pain

I am scheduled to have the RFA procedure, burning of the facet joint nerves, in a few days. I have severe sciatica in both legs as a symptom of spinal stenosis. I have been in constant pain for 10 months  One foot is almost completely numb even when I am not standing. I cannot stand more than a minute or so. Any information or hope?

    While you are waiting on a reply, go to the search box at the top right of the page and key in RFA. Scroll down past the ads and you will find good articles to read on this subject.

  • Sitsalot, there are also lots of discussions on this topic and should show up when you type it in the box. You could also check nerve burn. There is a good discussion right now under Nerve Ablation/Denervation.

    As Sandra and Joanne noted, there is lots of discussion on this topic in the forums. Personally, I've had several rounds of RFA without any improvement in pain.

  • Thank you. I am learning my way around the site. I have found some of the posts.
