Hello,

I've lived with degenerative disc disease and fibro for 20+ years. A new doctor just recommended a facet rhizotomy to treat the pain related to the degeneration in my lower spine. I'm concerned because this sounds like a very painful procedure that is killing off nerves. Has anyone tried this? If so, how did it affect the fibro pain? My fear is that even if it does help the pain from my spine, it will kick the fibro into high gear.

Thanks!
Jenn

I'm having the same thing done in December. I understand that the nerves do grow back so helps for several months.
I'm curious as well as to who has had this procedure done.
