Has anyone had or even heard of nerve rhizotomy or burning the nerves?
Had 360 fusion of L4 - S1 nine years ago and have really bad arthritis that they tell me is one of the sad side effects many years out from multi level fusions. They did some facet injectiions a few weeks ago and they are doing nothing because my problem is pain at my surgery sites and now in my hip sockets, since I no longer have facets from L4-S1 they put the shots in above the area. Now they are telling me they want to burn the nerve endings (rhizotomy?) and that many people can go pain free for months at a time before the nerves grow back. I am not sure I want to even do this and was hoping someone could let me now if they have had this done and if it works?
