Epidural nerve block at L4/L5

Thought I would post how my epidural nerve block went on wednesday 29th may,before the block I had severe constant low back pain especially at L5/S1 like a constant pain and feeling of weakness I have had a fusion at this area around 1 1/2 years ago,my worst problem was my left leg feeling cold with spasms from back of thigh down to side of shin and ankle and top of foot with foot drop.I have had a brilliant outcome from this epidural my foot drop remains but my lower back pain is almost gone away along with leg pain gone,the spasms remain in my foot/ankle but no pain.My walking has improved and my leg feels warmer like normal I've not felt my leg feel warm for a long long time.I realise it is only the third day since having the procedure but I feel so good I thought someone may benefit from hearing this.
