I am also in the Lidocaine inetion stages and am having mixed results of the testing. I have had very little information given to me by my pain doctor. I didn't even know that this was a "pre-surgery" procedure for diagnosis. I would be extremely grateful if someone could explain the procedure from a patient's standpoint. The doctors have told me almost nothing except that they use RF to "numb" the nerve.
Could someone tell me what to expect. Am Iawake during the surgery? How long is recovery? How much pain is expected?
I thank you for any help you can provide.
