: Help, I am at my wits end!!Does anyone know how many selective nerve root blocks a person can have in a year? And how many should a person have in a lifetime? Different doctors give me different answers.I have bilateral T-6 SNR's done to control pain. They only last about a month. 1st doctor's answer is that joint nerve blocks should only be done 3 times in a lifetime; however, spinal SNR's you can get up to 3 in a year and it doesn't matter how many in a life time. 2nd doctor said he would not get more than 3 SNR's in a lifetime no matter where they are located. 3rd doctor says he would rather have an intrathecal pump put in versus having SNR's for the rest of my life. Can someone please help me with this. Is there any information on the internet?
: : thanksmaria
