In brief: Stellate celiac
Anything is possible.
But medical common sense dictates that you should not have both at the same time. I certainly would not. I usually would wait one week between the two.

In brief: Yes
Both blocks can be performed at the same time.
However, it is up to the pain management specialist to make recommendations regarding the timing of the two procedures.
