Epidural Injection Side Affects

Last Thursday, my husband was given his first epidural for lower back and leg pain. I saw a topic posted about oral yeast infections after an epidural, and I'm wondering if this could be related to the fact that my husband has had diarrhea since the evening of his injection. It has been four days of using Imodium with no relief in sight. Has anyone else had this issue to deal with?

Hi Donna Lee and Welcome

I've had 3 epis and never had those symptoms. Take him to his regular Dr. to see what going on. I hope he's keeping up fluids as we don't want any dehydration. Let us know what the Dr. says. Take care. Charry
