    Hi @jo46. Thanks for reaching out to us.

    I haven't had this procedure. I hope someone who has had this procedure will be able to respond to you soon. 

    In the meantime, is there a particular reason you are interested in hearing about this? Just wondering how we can support you the most effectively  :)

    Hello there @jo46 thanks for explaining what happened, it does sound like a scary time. How are things now?

    I'm afraid I haven't gone through anything similar, but were you offered any support with the recovery from your lumbar medical branch block test?

    Have you been able to speak to anyone, like your GP, about the impact this has had on your mental health?

    Oh no, sorry @jo46! Should have known better than think you would receive a call that quickly. 

    Hopefully, your doctor will at least listen to you. You deserve to be taken seriously and receive what you need  <3

    Hello
