3rd time lucky with this question!

I had a pethadine injection as pain relief when giving birth, and this was 3 months ago, my leg still feels brused, I've read online about women who have total numbness in their leg after it, mine isn't so bad, but it's still feeling brused when touched. Any help please?

  • I had the same problem. I didn't worry about it too much and the pain eventually went away.

  • I am completely unfamiliar with pathadine injections. Anything that lingers after 3 months should be checked by your doctor.
