Rhizotomy Trial #1
Well Monday morning I will get my first of two Rhizotomy trials. They will put me out briefly then shoot something in there to put certain nerves asleep. Doctor says the trial works for maybe 6-8 hours. They are looking to see if I get 50 percent or more relief before doing the real thing. Some have said the trial did nothing for them, but the Rhizotomy work wonders. And others say the trial gave them such relief for a day and then the actual Rhizotomy helped for 1 1/2 years.
I really believe I’m a great candidate for this procedure because I deal predominantly with nerve pain. And this procedure is all about temporarily killing certain nerves that will eventually grow back.
I feel optimistic and that hope is in front of me. I’m told the real thing can be rather painfully at first, but still worth the relief. Of course, I’m also awaiting the approval of my stimulator battery being surgically replaced with one that is fully MRI friendly.
Lord Jesus, I thank you for all You have done, are doing, and will do. I give you this night, this week, and my entire future. Have your way in my life. And, please show up in a big way for your glory!
