my fiance just gave birth on April 24 of this year our daughter. she was around 30 weeks and breach so a standard delivery could not be done they had to give her a c-section. she decided on the epidural because everyone told her that she would be fine. when they decided to take the baby, a nurse practitioner started the procedure but failed to get it in at all, she poked, and moved the long thick needle around in her spine, taking it out several times and re-trying it again, finally the doctor came in and put it in the first try. she is now suffering from headaches, back pain that feels just like back contractions that she had while she was pregnant, she can't lie in one place on her back for any length of time, sit or stand for long periods, and she has a hard time with our daughter when we go out because of this. does this sound like an epidural gone wrong, and if so what can be done about it.
