I am desperate for answers regarding my recent pregnancy labor that has left me in severe pain and an unusual lump on my back located were I had a spinal fusion two years prior to the birth of my child.(L5-S1). I was in labor for 36 hours and pushed for over 3 hours. After all of that they decided to do a c-section, I had to go under general anesthesia after they attempted an epidural and a spinal which neither worked. It has been 7 weeks and I can't function as I did prior to the pregnancy and I'm at a loss as to what could be wrong. I keep getting the runaround from the Hospital I gave birth at and I don't know what to do. I need to be able to care for my baby and function but I am struggling tremendously with that.
