I am quite nervous if this is a safe procedure. “Needles in the spine” through anesthesia or nerve blocks, in my personal experience and what I am learning has happened with others as well, has caused or worsened the pain of Tarlov Cysts.
“Declan Koehler was a little cranky Friday as he lay on the operating table at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Declan was ready to undergo a urology procedure that would have the surgeon cutting into him. But instead of general anesthesia, which would put Declan to sleep, the infant’s parents opted to allow him to stay awake during the surgery with a spinal anesthesia numbing and immobilizing him from the mid-chest down.”
