Radiofrequency Neurotomy

Radiofrequency Neurotomy

Has Anyone Else Decided To Go With Pain Managment Instead Of Pain Killers?

At one point I was on 12 T3’s a day for the lower back pain from the collapsing discs; especially S1-L5. The next step was to go on Opiods (hope I spelled it right) anyway. I decided to go for a breast reduction and pain management instead. Anyone else?
