My neuro felt that it doesn't always work and even when it does work, there is a relatively high percentage of people where the pain returns.

Over the years going to various boards, I've seen posts that kind of confirms this. However, sometimes people have gone a very long time without pain.

I would try to gather stats from any doctors you are considering who perform the procedure and of course make sure you've tried everything else first.

I was beginning to look into it myself, but ended up having improvement with the compounded cream I mentioned in the other post.

Wishing you much much less pain in whatever you end up doing.
