I have had RFA done for my back multiple times over the past few years. Never had much pain following the procedure, until now.
I had RFA on my left lumbar spine (3 levels) this past Wednesday. Since then my pain has increased significantly. Feeling like I can barely function. Normally, I rarely use my meds for breakthru pain, but I have been using them the past few days with very little relief.
I have heard that sometimes there is some increase in pain for a week or so following the procedure, but this pain is so much worse than the amount of pain prior to the procedure.
Is this normal?
Thanks for your help.
