Default Kneed to Know.

Hi All,at last I can explain the process of having the nerves cut (burned)in ones' knees. Last Friday my doctor injected an anesthetic plus cortisone into my right knee "to test my suitability for the final procedure".Everybody who applies for this procedure has to have this done. The doctor examines the patient after a week or so,& if he deems you suitable,sets a date for the operation which is done under a general anesthetic,& the nerves he injected previously are "burned"(his words)to kill the pain. I won't be having my right knee done till after Christmas as the good doctor is on vacation from today. Merry Christmas to all.James

James, similar but different. I had lower back pain for years. Finally I decided to do something about it. The procedure, same as yous but different place, is called a radiofrequency ablation. Since I had pain on both sides of my back I had the anesthetic injections done on different days and then the ablations done on different days. Four visits to the surgery center. They burn out the specific nerves that are sending the pain signals to the brain. The nerves will eventually grow back. Both of my ablations were a success and I've had little to no back pain in the last 3 months. Don't know how long it will last but, if the pain returns, they can do that procedure again. That's on the good side and I hope that's the way it turns out for you.

Unfortunately, for me, shortly after I had that procedure my Sciatic nerve decided that it should take over producing pain going from my left butt down my leg into my foot. I've had 3 injections, each one more localized trying to stop the pain. The last one did, for 24 hours, until the anesthetic wore off and the pain came back with a vengeance. That, at least, identified where the pain was coming from. I'm now trying to find a neurosurgeon to correct the problem. Again, unfortunately, specialists are booked up months in advance.

One of my problems with all of this is my shop time has been severely limited. Most days, no time at all, other days an hour or two with periods of having to sit down. With the holidays upon us I wasn't able to make some of the gifts that I intended to. Will have to buy some junk instead. Oh, well, Merry Christmas to all of you who persevered to read this. And Merry Christmas to those of you who didn't.
