Hi, 6 days ago I had a cervical radiofrequency ablation. This was my 2nd one. The first one was about 9 months ago.Anyway, the pain was pretty bad for several weeks last time, and so far I am having a lot of pain with this one. Today I have the start of a headache. I was given 30 Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen. I’ve been taking it everyday except yesterday, but I paid the price for skipping it.
My biggest question is how much longer can I take these pills without running into a potential risk of Medication Overuse Headaches? I’m taking them for neck pain more so than for headache usually. Don’t know if that matters?
Anyone else have this procedure? What did you do for pain, and how long did the pain last? I am just waiting for the pain to subside to see if it’s going to work as well this time around.
