I am pregnant and expecting soon.I am already set up for a c-section because of my last labor, however during the last labor, it was an emergency and there wasn't any time to do a spinal so they gave me some stuff to knock me out and used an oxygen mask then cut me open. They had him out in less than 9 minutes.
My c-section (only one) was due to the fact that I went into labor 3 weeks early and the cord was pinched by my sons head and with each contraction his heartbeat dropped. it was in the 50's by the time I got him out. Thank GOD I didn't listen to the nurse who said "I think its just braxton kicks. Stay home, you'll be fine"......or they would have lost us both according to the doctors.
Fast forward. Now that I have a c-section set up, I need to know how many people have had a spinal without having permanent back damage after? Or for Doctors, how many succesful ones have you done? This scares me to death because I know several people that are now telling me they have permanent back damage because of the spinal procedure......Any info you can give would be great. I really don't know how they work other than the youtube vid I watched or how long they are really supposed to last......please no bashing, and thanks ahead of time.

I have never had a c section with a spinal, but my sister has as well as several friends. Not one of them has permanent back damage. While I have heard of it, I do not know anyone personally who has experienced this.
