had back surgery 13 months ago for bone spurs on my spine. Was left with no feeling in feet and ankles. Icy cold all the time. Still in a lot of pain, found out I have a herniated disc in upper thoracic region which according to drs, can not be treated as it could lead to paralysis. To make a long story shorter, after having multiple cortizone injections in back,my dr. stated he would like to burn the nerves as the injection relief was not lasting. Has anyone else ever had this done & if so were the results good and were there any side effects. I also have systemic lupus and Shogren's Syndrome.
