Hi, i was hoping someone could help me. I have heard that epidurals can cause severe back pain in the minority of women and although its not for me personally as I have had my children I need help for my mum.
She has cancer of the colon and liver at 52 and has just had a liver surgery which means she had an epidural which was put in twice. Since her surgery 2 weeks ago she is in agony with back pain and the nurses can't isolate the problem. I am convinced its the epirudal.
Does anyone think this could be a possibility, and if so any experience of it themselves. I am hoping to solve the issue then she can gewt some relief. She is in a lot of distress with the pain. Any info would be welcomed.
