  • Mine never hurt, thank God. But what still feels sore is the side of my butt because they injected 15 iron shots there and it still has a green dot, and 4 years have passed already:(

  • my back hurt like heck for close to 6 months afterwards. Not sure if it was related to the epidural or not but my other kids were natural births and I never had backpain afterwards.

  • Mine did not hurt either. Def mention it to your doc and be sure to let him know it has happened the whole time...maybe even call him earlier than 6 weeks.

  • ummm....6 years? lol. I don't know if the pain is related to my pregnancies pulling my my spinal muscles, but I have deep sciatic pains, and they didn't start until I had the epi with my first labor 6 years ago.

  • Talk to your doc. It shouldn't still be hurting.

    Mine didn't hurt AT ALL.

  • Yes, I do not recall mine hurting either. Good luck! It might end up being something semi permanent, happens to a lot of women =x
