Epidural Or Ablation?

Epidural Or Ablation?

Hola everyone!! Hope everyone is managing and having a great day. I have a question for anyone that has had an epidural or ablation? I just had me 2nd round of medial branch blocks from my L4 to S1 And now I’m scheduled for an epidural instead of ablation. He said he was afraid ablation would t work and didn’t want to try it just yet. What’s anyones thought or opinion on it. Thanks!!
