Shared experience with Radiofrequency Ablation 9 years ago

I can't tell you what to do. I can only share my experience. I have had RFA down to both sides of my lower back. I have a condition known as Adhesive Arachnoiditis. I had back surgery because of L-4, L-5,S-1 being herniated. I believe the AA already existed due to a prior injury and an epidural gone horribly wrong. The RFA on the left side of my back has worked beautifully. 95% relief. The right side however is much worse. I have several symptoms that I did not have before. It has increased the pain on the right side by at least 60-70%. I am however scheduled to try it again on the right side. I am a fighter and I will not give up. I have faith in my pain Doctor and do not feel that he did anything wrong. The right side is the one that received the most damage in the fall.
