I had a epidural gone wrong 2.5 years ago I have had many epidurals in the past none like this one. i have 8 children and this last one was the one that got me. I still suffer with spinal headache and my left side going numb all the time. When the epidural was being done the anaestesioligist said oh shit and asked if I felt an headache I cried yes and I could not focus right and felt like I was going to get sick. After 2 days in the hospital I was offered a blood patch with only 30% that it would work, I turned it down in fear they would hurt me more. My newborn son I could not even hold because my back and head hurt so bad. After a week I returned to the er I wanted to hold my son but could not when in the er an anaestesiologist came to take with my and said he could not help and said I may get hurt worse. 2.5 years later I still have a lump in my back where the epidural was done I get numbness down my left side and I get instant spinal headaches as well as feeling the fluid in back leak still, when moving the wrong way or if I bend over or try to lift something light. I live on a farm have 8 children and cannot not do day to day chores or play with my kids I am so limited. I have owned a construction company in which i used to do the work now my husband has to because of this epidural gone wrong. So how can you fix this?????????????
