This pamphlet is a French translation of "Having an Epidural after Surgery" pamphlet 1378. An epidural is a way to give you pain medicine after surgery. It may give you better pain relief than other ways of receiving pain medicine. You may be more alert with an epidural than with other pain control methods. It can also help you move better after your surgery. This pamphlet explains the possible side effects of an epidural, what to expect for pain when you have an epidural, who will look after your epidural pain relief, and how long you will have the epidural.
