Anyone had an epidural?

I had an epidural and it was wonderful. No pain until they took it out and if they give you your first dose of pain meds before removal, you should transition smoothly. I can't take either morphine or demoral so I took percocet after the epidural. It slows recovery because you can't get out of bed with the epidural in, but it sure beats having pain and getting sick from medication. It was the anaestheologist who gave me the info on the epidural. My doc was not the greatest at communication either so I talked to everyone I knew about their experiences and read several books.

Anyone had an epidural?

Hi Girls!!

First, I just want to tell you all what a wonderful bunch of Gals you all are!! You are all truly heaven sent! Thank you all and GOD BLESS!

I never had an epidural for my TAH but I did have one for my back problem. Thanks was wonderful!!! Now, I just read one of the women said she had a spinal tap headache. I did have a spinal tap and she is soooo right, this is not just a headache. It was the worst experience! I was in bed for 6 days. I only got up to go the the bathroom. The second I lifted my head off the pillow, my head began to pound (much worse than pound but I cant think of a better adjective) and immediatly the violent vomiting began.

If the spinal tap headache is an issue, I would definaltley suggest not having it. I cant imagine my post-op body having also had the spinal tap reaction. BAD NEWS!!

Hugs & prayers for you
