Patient Comments (1)
in Ft Smith, AR |
I have received two facet rhizotomy's over the last year. First time I only received local injections to minimize the pain. It was not enough and I experienced sever pain. The second time in our preop visit I requested conscious sedation with the local injections for pain. The day of the procedure I did get an IV started but IF they gave me any meds through it, it was not enough to notice. I have had conscious sedation meds administered a few times in my life and know how it feels. NOT HAPPY!!!
