  • Some people get headaches or backaches regularly after the epi... but MOST people have no complications at all. My epi went in with no problem, did it's job, came out with no problem & I don't regret having one at all.

  • I didn't care for it. My back has hurt ever since plus I didn't find it benifical in reducing my pain at all! I prefer the stadol!

  • Mine took a while (about 7 hours as opposed to the normal hour or two) to wear off in my left leg because I stayed laying on my left side for too long. They never told me I should switch sides every hour or so. But I thank the heavens above for it, I'm not a big fan of pain and if I can do something to make it go away I will.
