Burning of the spinal nerves

I have had back pain, Degenerative Disc Disease and Arthritis. I have been getting 8 steriod injections, which last only a little while. Now my Pain Management Doctor is wanting to burn the two nerves, and mentioned that there could be a risk of one leg being numb, for how long is not known. This concerns me. I have talked to several people who have had this done, and one lady still cannot use her left leg. Like having a stroke, her feeling has not come back in two years. Should I just stick to the injections? What if I do loose my feeling in one leg, let alone both?

Are you getting any pain medication after the injections? Like to take home?
