Good morning. I have been receiving medial branch block injections for diagnostic work to figure out which levels in my thoracic and lumbar spine are the problem. I am still confused on the difference between a medial branch block and a facet joint and Inhection: do they actually give different results? Please explain. Thanks!
1) Schwannoma removal (1) @ L2-L3 (2001)
2) Schwannoma removal (3) @ T11-L3 (2008)
3) Failed laminectomy syndrome T11-L2, facet joint disease, ongoing schwannoma formation. Fusion scheduled from T10-L3 (April 12th, 2017). Chronic pain that never goes away
