Rhizotomy: How to prepare physically and mentally?
Hello, I'm reading you reside in Canada, as do I. Are you in Ontario, by any chance. I've read recently re Rhizotomy, and wondered whether positive results, or temporary. Wish you well if you don't see this post before procedure occurs.

Thanks for your response and good wishes.
I reside in Saskatchewan. My research tells me rhizotomies are not effective for everyone and they can last from 3 months to a year or so. I'm feeling it is yet another attempt to try a treatment that will stave off surgery (which I'm ok with).
