Thank you for your reply Dr Corenman

So, the steroid injection was 8 weeks prior to the ablation attempt. According to the surgeon equipment was good enough to perform 8 procedures on that day with no problems. Actually, he was quite baffled with the outcome and is adamant the kit was not at fault.

Have you ever had similar encounter with the ablation? Does the fact that the steroid injection did not bring the relief, but the anaesthetic did significant? Would you recommend I should pursue this procedure at a different hospital? If ablation is something that is not feasible, are there any other non-surgical avenues would you pursue in my case, i.e., a 41-year-old male, very active with significant annular tear of L5-S1 and dark MRI imagery of L3-L4 and L4-L5.

Kind regards
