RF or cryo?

I'm desperate for relief and looking into which procedure might work. I don't have a lot of money to spend so need to factor that in. Can anyone tell me why they chose certain therapies?

Cryo freezes the nerve and is considered neurodestructive. You can do a search using the search bar in the upper right corner and read the reports on this forum on people who have tried cryo. It has mixed reviews for success. What do you mean by RF? I've heard of PRFA -- pulsed radio frequency ablation. It is different from cryo in that it is not considered neurodestructive and uses short pulses of heat to shock the nerve.

I chose the treatments I tried based on my history, symptoms, and clinical exam results. Do you know what caused your PN to start?

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.
