G.O.N.B

I've had two GONB injections and have another appointment in August .Is there a limit to how many you can have in Scotland ,these are the only treatment that's working so I'm hopeful it can keep being repeated .
Any advice appreciated

Hi Dana

I'm glad the GONB is helping you. I'm not sure about how often you can have them in Scotland. It's normally about every three months but you would need to find out from your neuro what the policy is in your area.

All the best

Thanks Dorothy,I was panicking a bit when I read somewhere that you could only get it twice in Scotland.It gives me roughly a three week break from CCH so it's a godsend

Good luck Dana, I hope you are able to get what you need for those precious pain free weeks.

All the best for August.
