Default Seven Weeks Ago (Knee Procedure)

It is just over seven weeks since I had the Radio Frequency Ablation procedure done to my right knee & so far notice no benefit whatsoever.I've been told to be patient as it could take up to 8 weeks for the nerves to deaden.I have pretty solid legs so this may be why it's taking so long. Next appointment with doctor in 3 weeks. James.jj777746.

Dang it James, this isn’t the news I wanted to hear . I was hopeful this was going to have a great outcome .
With any luck things improve over time James . I have to say 7 weeks is quite a long time already ?

Everything seems to take longer the older I get so maybe it's the same for you.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

That procedure is usually real effective. Hopefully it does get better for you soon.

Sorry to hear that James. You don't realize how central the knees are to moving until they become problematic. Here's hoping it kicks in soon. If not what are the next steps?
