Has anyone had Rhizotomy Radiofrequency Nerve Ablation for coccydynia? I had a coccygectomy which only made my pain worse. I've had various treatments, the last of which was the trial for a peripheral nerve field stimulator, which was a failure. It has now been recommended by my pain management Dr that I have a rhizotomy radiofrequency procedure before trying a different nerve stimulator. Any info would be appreciated.
