After the first rf (radio-frequency) treatment, I was okay and had some pain relief for about three days,
However after this second treatment, my pain levels have gone up and I've got some swelling around
where it was done and it's been a few weeks since it was done, and I followed all their directions
accordingly about the ice and heat. Today my pain levels are way up (9- 10) there and I went to physical therapy
and could not tolerate the tens unit (first time for that) and could feel the vibrations of the tens unit
in my foot and it bothered me so much, I literally cut it off early. this has never happened to me before.
I'm getting an lower lumbar MRI done on the 24 December 2008.
Plus every step I take with my left foot causes pain, never had that before or at least don't remember having it.
Should I use Ice tonight instead of heat, any help would be appreciated.
Thank you and hope y'all have a happy holidays........
