Has anyone had good results from a Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block for nerves which didn't regenerate after spinal decompression?
Hello @atchastain, I see that you have recently joined and would like to welcome you to Mayo Clinic Connect. I did a search on Connect and did not find any posts other than this one for Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block. I did find some information that explains what it is but I'm guessing you already know what it is.

Has your doctor suggested a Sellate Ganglion Nerve Block? Are you able to share a little more about your condition or diagnosis?
@artscaping or @jenniferhunter may have some suggestions for you.
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.
