Spinal block

I am posting here to ask those Mum's out there who had a c-section birth and had it done under a spinal block, not an epidural a few questions to help me decide for my upcoming ankle surgery.

I don't tolerate GA's well, so the block was suggested.

Could someone who remembers or knows the procedure walk me through what and how its done?
Once it takes effect does it prevent you from being able to move from the waist down?
Does it totally kill sensation or can you still feel pressure, just no pain?
How long do they take to wear off?
Can you still sense that you need to use the bathroom?

Thanks in advance
