Facet Rhizotomy for severe spasms
I had L5-S1 fused April '09 and an XLIF on T11-T12 (fusion) in Oct '09 and did well, but started having severe spasms once again daily by mid April '11. Spasms have plagued me since '05. I just had a Facet Rhizotomy T12 thru T9. It has killed the spasms but I woke up sleeping on my back this morning (that always causes me severe pain) with the same pain dead center above my fusion site. Good news is there is/was a solution to my/your spasms bad news I still have bone pain. I'm calling my surgeon on Monday and if he can't see any other problem I'm making my appointment at Bonati Spine in Florida as I have enough $ for one last try.
