Re: Second Block
Feb 17, 2004
Hi Sandson :wave:

This was only my second block so I don't know how effective they are going to be. I know there are people on this board who have had a lot more and could maybe share their experiences with you.

Medication really hasn't been very effective, sometimes it doesn't even take the edge off. When I left the docs office after the block though, I cried because I hadn't had this much relief in so long. I'd say my pain was 50% better. I pray they will cotinue to become more effective and last longer. The blocks I get are called lumbar sympathetic blocks. I think those are different than stellate blocks, not sure I am still new to

I am so sorry you have to deal with workers comp dictating your treatment, I know that has to be difficult.

Good luck, I hope your pain gets better once you are able to start blocks.

[SIZE=3][COLOR=RoyalBlue]Hi Gina,

Congratulations! That's great news. I hope you continue to get more and better relief. You are right...your blocks (lumbar sympathetic blocks) are different from stellate ganglion blocks which are done for upper extremities. Good luck with next week's block.

Hi everyone :wave:

I am still having back pain and stiffness in my neck and back since my block on Wednesday. Is this a common side effect of a lumbar sympathetic block?
