I didnt think a "spinal" and a spinal tap were the same thing. :shock:



I got an epi before I had mine. They had to give me medicine twice through it during surgery, but the only real problem I had was being itchy as hell that night.



My cousin had a spinal. IDK the real difference, but apparently you get really bad headaches from them sometimes.

haha.. I was thinking I was right. I was almost sure a spinal is where they suck out a bit of fluid from your spine. But then, I would not have been surprised if I were wrong.



I have seen a diagram somewhere of the difference in procedure between a spinal and an epi before, but I dont remember where.
