The annual ride across Wisconsin is in 3 weeks and I just had an L4 epidural today. I'm pretty much beside myself about this with a great old friend (and family) coming all the way from Boulder to join our Wisconsin trip this year. I've been laid up in agony for 3+ weeks and am hoping for a miracle recovery.
(Indiana Dunes weekend with old college friends possibly started the agony -- nobody else brought a bike so I went out looking for hills to devour. I'm not sure it was the biking that caused it. Probably dragging the jet ski onto the beach when it broke down...)
Anyway, .. any experience with how quickly and how well epidurals have worked???
