Question: Is there any side effects for taking epidural after delivery
Answer: Hello....An epidural is a procedure that injects a local anaesthetic in to the space around the spinal nerves in your lower back. This anaesthetic usually blocks the pain from labour contractions and during the birth very effectively. With an epidural you can usually move and can push your baby out when you need to...
Side effects could be...
Loss of bladder control
In case the needed is not injected into the right area, it may damage certain nerves. In these cases, it becomes difficult to control the bladder. Even after the operation or delivery is over, the person may find it difficult to control the bladder. Although chances for this kind of damage are less, the risk cannot be totally eliminated. Generally, the bladder starts functioning in the normal way after the epidural is removed. However, if it damages the nerves around the area, the problem may last for a long time.
During epidurals, the needle is inserted close to the spine. In case it punctures the fluid-containing bag surrounding the spine, it may cause severe headaches in the long run. You may have to get specific treatment to get rid of this headache. Most of the time, the needle is inserted by experts, so that the risk of damaging the bag containing fluid is minimized. However, if the fluid bag gets punctured, the person may suffer from frequent headaches.
In certain cases, the area around the epidural tube may get an infection. Although infections do not generally occur, it may lead to serious conditions in severe cases. Generally, the physicians prescribe antibiotics to heal the infection. It subsides in a short period of time. However, it may lead to further complications if the infection does not dry up. It may spread to the surrounding areas, resulting in severe pain. If antibiotics fail to heal the infection, a surgery may be needed. The affected area is operated upon by the surgeons and the infection is removed.
