I have felt like 6 months of relief with these injections is a gift from God! It's not magical complete relief, but Wow! 6. Whole. Months! My doctor gave me sedation and they are guided by ultrasound. I get the ablations and I get them in multiple areas. So for about six months, I'm going in at least once a month for injections. I pay my regular co-pay and I'm on Medicare. According to the receipt from insurance that I see, it's no where near $16k, it's expensive, but quite a bit lower than 5 figures. They don't work for everyone and every doctor may not burn the exact right spot, but if they work? Truly, 6 months is a little miracle from heaven!
They put heat on my back / neck after injections. I get them approx. every 5-6 weeks. My nerve taps for a severed ilioinguinal nerve is every 3 months and that's by ultrasound. For both, most times they work after a few days, but sometimes they don't.
