    Hi bev, if it's anything like the spinal blocks they give you for an elective csection - they are not painful at all. I've had both epidural and spinal block and the only discomfort I had was due to being 9 months pregnant and having to bend.

    good luck for Tuesday :-) xx

    It's not painful - quite the opposite :D I could feel it 'wiggling' a little going in which freaked me out a bit but it was discomfort if anything not pain.

    I had a general and a spinal for my last cystectomy and it's great pain relief post-op. They gave me the spinal as they weren't sure if they'd need to convert to open surgery from keyhole and spinal is best for open as it's much more major.

    I've had 3 spinals in total now; 2 for cystectomies and 1 for labour - topping up my epidural to go into theatre for forceps delivery.
