Weeelllll just had eight red hot needles in my back last Friday so far so good it makes you need nana naps between resting so as to prevent pain it’s a double edged sword ain’t it your damned if you do and damned if you don’t .
So far I’ve been lucky having denervation ( nerves burnt) only time will tell

Good to hear, hope it works. I had my Rhizotomy a month ago, the 1st three days I felt awesome due to the epidural I was bombarded with but after that I have had heaps of pain. I’m told my sacroiliac joint is part of the cause. The neurosurgeon is taking me down the nerve stimulator implant route, I’ve seen a clinical psychologist and he feels I’m also a candidate for the implant, I see the surgeon again end of April.

Hey mate,

Think seriously about this there are a lot of people who say they love them and a lot hate them.
Once it’s in ,you will have to extremely careful for a period of time re: bending etc. if the wires break you need them fixed if you look through the forum I think you’ll find a lot of info it could be under “stims”

Hi Johnno,

Thank you for your thoughts.
My Clinical Psychologist has mentioned that to me, approx 3 months of being careful of not moving the implant wires. Won’t be easy but at this stage I’ve run out of ideas. I will be asking for some xrays on my sacroiliac joint as that where a lot of my pain is.

If I lay about and do nothing I feel pretty good, within 5-10 minutes of getting up, the weight bearing starts causing pain in the lower lumbar, weakness and pain in right leg, I lay down and things settle down again.

I see my neurosurgeon end of April so stil time to see if the Rhizotomy has made any difference
