Cervical median branch block relieved my neck pain for 2 days then pain again. Did mbb again. Same result. Now it's time for ablation?

Cervical median branch block relieved my neck pain for 2 days then pain again. Did mbb again. Same result. Now it's time for ablation?

What is the cause: Medial branch blocks (mmb) of nerves anesthetize few hours, proving nerves carry pain signals to brain; ablation also temp (few mo). But what are actual peripheral pain transducers? Mbb does not reveal. Are pain transducers myofascia, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves pinched at spine? True cure requires id of pain generator (s). See osteopath ; rule in/rule out candidate transducers. ...Read more

Check with your doc: Ablation works in 90-95% or women, so check as to whether there were circumstances in your situation that put your procedure in the failed category. Cervical cauterization is not a commonly performed procedure these days vs years ago, when it was fairly common. ...Read more

Should I get laser ablation for the removal of a premature cancer on my cervix?

Should I get laser ablation for the removal of a premature cancer on my cervix?

? In-Situ: Laser ablation is the equivalent of surgical excision. By "premature" I assume you mean 'in-situ' carcinoma. Either continues to convey some risk of cells deeper than the ablation/excision removes. ...Read more

Cervical medial branch block with DEXA lidocaine gave me 1 day of neck pain relief. After 1day neck pain again. Ok to Proceed to radiofreq ablation?

Cervical medial branch block with DEXA lidocaine gave me 1 day of neck pain relief. After 1day neck pain again. Ok to Proceed to radiofreq ablation?

No way!: Be patient. Some times it takes a few weeks for DEXA to get effect. Ablation is a serious procedure with some side effects and no warranties. Rec. See your pain management specialist for medication adjustment (e.g. tramadol, relafen, (nabumetone) Lidocaine 20% patch, etc.)
Also cognitive behavior therapy. East-West integration medicine.
Take care. ...Read more

Could laser ablation of the cervix cause toxic shock syndrome? Would a sunburn like rash on the hips be indicative of tss?

Could laser ablation of the cervix cause toxic shock syndrome? Would a sunburn like rash on the hips be indicative of tss?

Possible?: It's theoretically possible but I haven't heard of any such cases and wasn't able to find any case reports. A flat rash on some part of the body can be seen with tss but it's not common. If you're not feeling well and suspect you may have tss, it's best to go to an emergency room immediately. ...Read more

As a patient, is it inappropriate to ask a pain management doctor how many cervical radio frequency nerve ablations he has done? Are 5 of them alot?

It's fine to ask: As a patient you have a right to know what level of experience your physician has. So ask away. Cervical radio frequency ablations are not a really common procedure, even for someone who specializes in pain management. 5 is not a big number but if I felt comfortable with my doctor otherwise I wouldn't let that bother me. ...Read more

How long the recovery time is for thermal ablation?

How long the recovery time is for thermal ablation?

Usually 1-2 days: Most ablations require very little recovery & you should be back to normal after 1-2 days. You need to be at pelvic rest (nothing in the vagina) for 2-4 weeks, but otherwise downtime is minimal. If done under general anesthesia, 1-2 days is usually needed to recover from the anesthetic. Rarely pts may experience severe pain & need up to 2 weeks off to recover. Take the pain meds prescribed! ...Read more

Recovery after an endometrial ablation?

Should be quick: One of the advantages of the endometrial ablation is the quick recovery. This is a minimally invasive procedure; most patients are back to normal in about a week. There is some cramping that can be expected. If you are having bad cramps, pain or a foul discharge, these could be signs of an infection. Follow up with the surgeon who performed the procedure. They can and should tell you what to expect. ...Read more

Laprascopic ovarian cyst removal with ablation. I have a cruise scheduled 17 days post op. Am I crazy? Recovery time? Plane ride?!?

Fine: You'll be fine. You probably won't be on any pain meds at all, assuming no complications with your surgery. Most important, because you're 42, is just to make sure that you prevent any blood clot by moving around frequently. Get up, if you can, every hour or so on your plane ride for circulation. Check out exercises you can do with your legs while sitting on plane to prevent blood clot. ...Read more

Anterior cervical disectomy recovery time?

Depends: For a standard cervical discectomy and fusion for radiculopathy it's 8-12 weeks. You could return to work more quickly depending on what you do. The hospital stay is typically overnight, though some surgeons do the procedure outpatient. If someone is very myelopathic, then the recovery/rehab is longer. For an artificial disc the recovery time is shorter since no fusion is expected. ...Read more

How long is cervical discectomy the operation length and recovery time?

It varies: For a one-level discectomy and fusion the operation typically lasts 1-2hours. I typically let my patients go home the same day of surgery. Recovery varies from patient to patient. I tell my patients no strenuous activity for first 2 weeks. We then start to ease them back into full activity so that they're back to normal activity by 6-8 weeks. See http://youtu.
