Experience With Knee G Nerve Blocks and Ablation?

sharmar08ssharmar08 Frederick, MDPosts: 2
Has anyone had a genicular nerve blocks and subsequently an ablation (when they burn the nerves) for long-lasting pain relief in knees with osteoarthritis?
I had this done almost 2 weeks ago and I am still waiting for the "pain relief".  They say it can take up to 4 weeks.
I'm wondering if anyone has had this procedure done and if so, what has their experience been like?
