After 5 years of unsuccessful treatments, I finally found a Doctor that could give me some answers. He did some diagnostic injections and then decided the best course of treatment would be RFA. That was done a little over a week ago. I was under a mild anesthesia, as they wanted to be able to communicate with me during the procedure, came home more sore than I have ever felt, and although the pain has somewhat subsided, I am still in pain more than I am used to. I don't have my follow up until the end of next week. I don't like taking pain meds as it just makes me more tired. The anti-inflamitories I take maybe once or twice a day, but I'm not a big pill taker. Ice packs have been packed as a regular for work now. Can anyone give me any insight as to when the pain will subside? They say I may start to see something at week 3. How about mild exercises to help progress things along? Thanks in advance!
