Hello.... I am inquiring because of my precious daughter that endured a rough epidural prior to her delivery of their baby boy. After delivery, she developed a very bad headache and she was told she needed a blood patch. They waited 24 hours to do the patch. The procedure went horribly as well. She was stuck 10 times and it did not work. Now she is home, on bed rest as they chose to see if it would heal on its own. They offered a second blood patch but she was so traumatized at this point she declined. We are a week out with absolutely no improvement. As a mom, I’m concerned. Was wondering if any had a similar experience and if someone could share how long they had to wait for the hole in the spinal sac to heal?
