So, I know with epidurals there are tons of stories about them not working or not working well like a certain part of you doesn't get numb etc. Since a c-section, from my understanding, is drugs injected into the same area, is it possible to not be completely numb during a c-section? I mean what do they do if you are having an emergency c-section and you still feel an area of pain? Would they give you general anesthesia? Does this ever happen? For some reason now I am thoroughly freaked out by this even though I am not planning on having a section. I have had issues at the dental office and getting a root canal and not being completely numb due to the way my nerves are in the area and that was really horrible so the thought of something like that happening is really disturbing to me.
