Getting epidural today and...
tlh509 posted:
just wondering, if others who have had it, does it normaly take a couple of days to kick in, and did you find that things got worse before they got better?

Anytime you get an epidural it should start working very soon after you have it done. It usually does get worse before it gets better through the course of physical therapy and other ways of strengthening your injury. Best of luck with all of this!

Thank you Susie. I have been doing back exercises several times daily, and some walking when possible. Also been doing some swimming at my local YMCA.
