Would really appreciate feedback a.s.a.p. I am due to go in for Day Surgery Mon for denervation on facet and sacroilliac joint (s). The pain I am in daily is indescribable though it is akways at its worst in bed. I am lucky if I get a full 2 hours sleep every night. As I have had over 20 operations for separate problems over the course of the last 25 years I get more and more anxious every time I need an Op. But this is worse - because I have to be awake !! I had the anti-infalmatory/steroid injections and despite Entinox I was in excrutiating pain having them. The Consultant performing the denervation has already told me this procedure will be much more painful than the first and that he has to do at least 10 injections so I am bricking it !!! I have already cancelled once but it was only this morning that I made my mind up to get it done otherwise I am going to stuck like this. I already suffer with Osteoporosis and Osteoporosis and suffer with alot of pain in all joints esp my legs. I don't want anyone to sugar-coat their response I just want to know how painful I can expect it to be although everyone is different. My pain threshold is usually v.high but the first lot of injections were agony so have left me v.v.anxious about Mon. My Consultant has also told me it's going to take at least an hour to complete the denervation. Pls pls let me know your experience. Forewarned is forearmed.
