I have a patient listed for a laparoscopic cholecystectomy this week who I want to avoid opioids in for multiple reasons. Would a single shot Paravertebral block at T10/11 (20 mls) be enough? Would you add Clonidine? Would an Erector Spinae Block at the same level be an appropriate plan B?
PS I'm very excited about this forum and the chance to ask all my questions!!
