  • After I had my twins (by C-section) I had back pain for about 5 months and also, my feet would go numb in the it would take a while to get out of bed (without falling over) Doc told me it was totally normal, and could take up to 2 years to feel totally normal again....but like I said it was only about 5 or 6 months.

  • I've had tons of back pain since my c-section. The epidural lost effect twice before I ended up getting a c-section, so I also have pain in my hips. I'm never comfortable unless I'm sleeping on my back these days.

  • It could be permanent or it could be is most likely from the epidural. My son is 5 months old and Im still having back pain..I also have back spasms (nerve damage)..I hope it gets better, but there is no way of knowing. I know a woman who had a epidural 10 years ago and still has pain associated with it.
