Epidural today w/ catheter in tailbone

Hi all!! I went to the doctor today and got my 3rd set of epidurals. The first 2 were regular with 6 shots total and they worked good, the first one for about 5 weeks and the second for about 4 months. I went today and he said because I usually get so many that he is just going to do a catheter in my tailbone and then put the injections up through there. It was better at first but once the locals wore off the pain is much worse. I am having some trouble with walking and getting in and out of bed, I was hoping someone could share their experiences with me. Thanks so much.


  • The first 3 days I felt heavy and bent over and more pain but it resolved after and my legs felt much better. I hope it works for you. Take care. Charry
