Epidural pain relief after surgery
Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCOA)
This was produced by the RCOG and is for anyone who may benefit from an epidural for pain relief after surgery. This leaflet describes what happens when you have an epidural, together with any side effects and complications that can occur. It aims to help you and your anaesthetist make a choice about the best method of pain relief for you after your surgery. We hope it will help you to ask questions and direct you to sources of further information.
