Do I have to bring someone along, or can I drive after a radiofrequency nerve ablation?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Care post nerve rx

I would need more info about this which should be obtained from your md.
Type of nerves treated? Type of anesthetic delivered? For example a temporal nerve ablation with no sedation would easily permit driving home but more extensive peripheral nerve treatments may require general and/or IV sedation in which case you should have a designated driver and someone to assist you post op.
