On front of my lower leg i noticed a grayish pink, tender bruise at 2 weeks postpartum, and at 6 mo. It's still there. Side effect of epidural swelling?

In brief: Unlikely

Epidural injections don't directly affect peripheral extremities or cause swelling.

I can't imagine how that could ave been caused by an epidural.
