: My plea for advise comes due to a surgery performed on my 6yr old granddaughter...Right before xmas she went in for a surgery to correct a situation with a bladder problem...an epidural was the anesthia used by the administrator. The surgery was a success, but due to some sort of a glitch in administering the epidural, my granddaughter has no feeling in her toes and lower foot, she suffers spasms that are very painful, and she has to wear a boot. Anger of course overcomes our family because, at this point, the doctors only offer a response of being stumped, and a wait see situation of 3 months.....is this normal? We are looking for anyone who has any input, positive or otherwise, truly because our faith in the medical community is nill....
: they did an mri, and other tests and are STUMPED>
