My baby is 6 days old now and doing wonderfully. I just had a question about epidural after effects. Is it normal to have some back pressure where the epidural was in place? And sometimes it goes up my back a little. No pain really, just some pressure every now and then. It's so hard to tell if it's that or from pushing or something. Has anyone had this happen before?
Hi! this is my first pregnancy so I cannot answer as someone who has had an epidural during delivery.
However, I have had MANY epidurals for my neck. I do not know if its the same thing but I sure was sore/tender after my epidurals for a few days to a week even. Did they say you can treat the area with ice and heat? That always helps me.
I hope I helped a little. You should probably call the Dr. just to see if its normal though.
