Hi all. A month ago I had a baby and during delivery noticed my left leg was numb, pins and needles, and I couldn't move it. Everyone said it was the epidural and it would wear off. The next day when I still couldn't feel it, and after badgering the staff to do more, I received a neurology consult and they scheduled an EMG. The EMG was today and the doc said the baby's head jammed against my pelvis and crushed some nerves. I was expecting a timeline of when I can expect the nerves to regrow but what I got was, "you have a really good chance of getting most of the function back at some point" which is pretty much the most ambiguous thing I've ever heard. Needless to say, I'm upset, not to mention terrified that I'm going to be crippled for the rest of my life at only 28 years old. My confusion is this; the doctor said that my nerves are still functioning and that the problem was with the needle part of the EMG. He didn't tell me anything else so I don't know what this means. Anyone have any idea? Thanks in advance!
