Spinal facet ablation

Posted by papaspeachy @papaspeachy, Mar 23, 2018

My husband had a spinal facet ablation on T7/8,T8/9 and T9/10. It was wonderful for about 3 weeks. Then the pain returned with a vengeance. They will only do this once every 6 months. Is there a surgical procedure to PERMANENTLY kill those nerves. He cannot even function except lay down let alone take a deep breath. After the ablation he could breath deep for the 3 weeks. I don’t understand why since they have pinpointed the problem nerves why they can’t fix them permanently. Please any suggestions would be helpful. At my wits end here.
