My Legs Go Numb at Night After Body Lift, Epidural Used?

Hi I am 10 days PO from a lower body lift and only during night time for the 2nd day in a row my legs feel numb. Tonight the numbness was felt in my hands up to my elbows. I had an epidural (spinal block). Is this normal? Is it my sleeping position? I just stopped wearing my compression stockings today. Should I start wearing them again? Will call my PS in the morning.

Your plan to call your surgeon is in order. You should not have any residual effect from the epidural 10 days out. All the best.
