Anyone with experience with severing nerves for chronic back pain
I had a rhizotomy for chronic back pain and it was wonderful!! I'm not going to lie, the procedure is very painful but it's so worth it. They basically burn the nerves so they no longer produce pain. Mine pain relief lasted about 6 months and then the nerves grew back and so did the pain. If I could afford it I would have a rhizotomy done every 6 months.
