Hi! I had Radio Frequency Ablation at L3, L4, and L5 in Oct. 2005. It worked very well for me for about 6 months. I was able to sit longer and had much less pain. I had it redone June 2006, and so far so good! You still have to be careful not to overdo it, I have to make sure I take breaks during the day and not sit too long. But before I had this, I could barely sit 15 minutes I was in so much pain! Now I can sit over an hour, walk around for a while and then sit again. It is a big improvement. I was diagnosed with a bulging disc at L5-S1, and facet joint pain at L3-L5. I have not had surgery, but have suffered this pain on the left side of my back for about 7 years. This is the first procedure that has helped me for an extended length of time. Good luck! Kera
