Repeating genicular RF?
Have a lady 100% relief with diagnostics. 100% relief with cooled RF x 1 month. Now pain is back, same distribution as pre-procedure. I dont think there is ITB/Pes Anserine or other such issue. I got worried about infection, but her implanting ortho saw her ASAP in office and didnt think so and the ESR/Sed/CBC I sent was neg. I guess my question is how can I explain this?

Difficulty of Dental School
Hello I was wondering if some people could give me advice about how "hard" dental school is. I recognize it's what you make of it and if you want to specialize then it is all the more rigorous because one must worry about grades. In undergrad, one must seek to answer the "why" question and apply knowledge for tests. Is dental school tricky like this? Or is it straight forward facts to memorize and know?
