Celiac plexus block

Postby Ozoda » Fri Feb 22, 2019 11:14 am

Hello all,

My mother has cancer in the tail of her pancreas with multiple liver metastasis. We were offered a celiac plexus block procedure to relieve pain.

Has anyone with cancer in the pancreatic tail had the procedure, and was it helpful?

Thank you so much! xx
