I'm new to this sight and I'm asking for some advice on the matter so here's my story..
I hurt my back in 2000. I have DDD, pinched nerves, both legs constantly hurts , bottom of feet feel like needles stickin me, have cramps in my feet and front of legs ( didn't have many cramps before ), been to physical theraphy, matter of fact been to about 5 different drs. had 2 MRIs, 6 epidual injections. I'm on hydrocodone-600mg, carisoprodol-350mg.. I went the 15th of this month and had Fecet injections ( nerves are temp. deadin 2-6 hrs. ) it lasted 4 hrs. ( thought I was in heaven ) but didn't do anything for my legs. So, now that want to do radiofrequency ablation ( nerves are perm. deadin )and I'm scared. The nerves are in your legs and back for a reason, I mean I don't know what to expect.
Can anyone give me some advice Please. If they had it done or know someone else that has had it done, did it work or not. I'm just confused.... Thank you all
