I had a back fusion as a 8 year old and I just found out I cannot have an epidural when I have kids.?

Has anyone else heard of this? I was told that if the doctor that operated on my back is present, i can have the epidural. The problem is wiht scar tissue in my back, precisly where the epidural is given.

    If the fusion is on the vertebrae where the insertion point is you are hosed.

    You can't get the needle and tube where it is supposed to go.

    May God bless you with a delivery of a healthy child and with a short memory of the pain you will end.

    Ok dude, you're being overprotective. Your sister has a different view than you. Women mature a little faster than guys most often. It's great that you're religious. And you're sister hasn't lost her faith, she's just discovering who she is. Ratting out your sister or bugging her phone will only drive her away. And you'll loose her faster. Take the advice. There are ways of positively influencing her decisions that don't involve parents or discovering porn on the computer or phone. And some advice, if the parents discover it on their own, take the hit on her behalf, no matter the punishment. Because you sister will trust you more. She's obviously not talking to your folks, you want her to talk to you at least. If you cover for her porn habits, you can let her know she can trust you. Which means when she gets older she voluntarily come to you first. As for influencing her decisions, reaffirm good choices, don't judge the bad ones. If she starts to date a boy who is a jerk, tell her : you can do better. If you see her dressing like a tart, remind her that she's beautiful in another outfit she owns that isn't as tarty. But don't judge. She's your sister, you're not her dad. She's going to need a friend more than often. Let that person be you.

    That is true. Most doctors won't TOUCH you if you've had previous back surgery by someone else. Unless the doctor who previously worked on your back in present or the one giving the epi.

    You may want to have him on call in the even you do need an epidural.

    better plan on doing it the old fashioned way. Oh, well, it's not that bad and it IS worth it. Just take Lamaze classes.
