In brief: Back pain after epid

It is not likely your pain is from the labor epidural after 19 months.
What is more likely is a back injury resulting from the actual vaginal delivery and associated efforts. This can be caused by a strain or herniation. Also, you should not overlook the possibility of an unrelated medical problem. If the pain is not dissipating and does not respond to over the counter medications, see a doctor.

In brief: Post epidural pain

Yes, it is possible to have pain after an epidural.
This may continue for days to years. Anti-inflammatories daily should alleviate your discomfort.
