How long does the procedure take?
A celiac plexus block is an outpatient procedure, which means patients are able to go home the same day. Please note that it is advised for patients to arrange for someone to drive them home from the appointment and provide support for the rest of the day. Some patients have reported feeling pain relief immediately or soon after the procedure, but others might need to have repeated injections if their pain levels do not improve or if the pain returns.
