5th December 2007 11:05Hi I've had problems with my back since a car accident 3years ago. And to be fair it hasn't really bothered me that much during pregnancy I've had a couple of days here and there but I manage it pretty well with physio and excerise. Anyway my midwife sent me to see a specialist to see if I could get epi or not when the time comes. So I went to see him and he said fine no problem but has booked my in for a nerve block on Monday for the pain! I explained to him when I was with him how I managed and I really don#t think its necessary to go down this route when I've only 4 weeks left. Has anyone had one or has any advice for me I'm so confused about why he feels the need to do it.
