My surgeon injected 40mg of Kenalog with 3 cc's of 1% Xylocaine into the Iliohypogastric nerve. This did not help so he then injected a little further lateral with some lidocaine and this hit the spot, so her then took another 20 mg of kenalog with 2 cc of saline and re-injected this spot.
I am unsure of the code, would I use 20550? I can't really find a code that fits.

There is a code for injection of anaesthetic agent into Iliohypogastric nerve, i.e. 64425, Injection, anesthetic agent; ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric nerves.
However, there is no such code for injection of steroid.
You will have to use unlisted code 64999, Unlisted procedure, nervous system.
