Back ache after Blood Patch

Hi, I just had a baby 3 days ago and got a a c-section where they went to far with the spinal anaesthetic and caused a leak in my dura mater resulting in a horrible headache.. Requested a blood patch to alievate the unbearable headache and it worked almost immediately. The blood patch worked..no pain while procedure was being done..needle was correctly placed..no numbness or pain but "mild pressure" laid for an hour for it to seal..came home and laid down for another hour..problem bow is I have a stiff back and it feels that if I were to turn any wrong way it would pain me, my question is that although I'm aware that there was back pain as the common side effect for this procedure, how long will it take for the pain to subside or completely be gone?. Thanks in advance
