Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block

I've had 2 drs suggest this type of block. There's not much info on the web about it, which is why I reached out to this site.

I have Cervical Stenosis with mylopathy. My hand and foot were affected. I had decompression and fusion surgery almost 1 1/2 years ago at Mayo. I was told then that the surgery probably wouldn't alleviate all my symtoms, but keep them from increasing. I've improved very little. Both Drs indicated that I'm about as good as I will get. This nerve block is about the last resort of at least some relief.of my hand pain.

I'm so glad that I stumbled upon this website. In the little time since I joined, I've learned a good bit. Mostly that there are people in more pain than I am. My prayers are you all.
