It's also worth remembering that the nerves heal from the RF ablation. If you don't have a plan to fix the area, you'll be back in the same position in 2-3 years, more or less, when the nerves shut down by ablation heal. Laura did use RF ablation but it was to buy time while she pursued other structural repairs so that she was net-improved when the nerves came back online, so to speak.

thanks for the heads-up, yeah I'm looking for a more permanent solution.
