Based on your question, it sounds like you would be well served by visiting a doctor and making sure there are not any issues going on that you may not be aware of. That being said, It is not uncommon for woman to experience back pain long after an epidural. If a doctor says there is a connection between the epidural and pain you could sue. Good luck.

Yes, you can sue the hospital. However, filing a lawsuit and winning one are two entirely different things. Your claim is likely against the individual, probably an anesthesiologist, who placed the epidural needle in your spinal canal. Anesthesiolologists are generally not hopsital employees, so hospitals are generally not exposed to liability in this kind of case.
In any event, I suggest that you promptly consult a Houston plaintiffs' lawyer who is certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. A link to the Board's website appears below. This is a potential health care liability claim. Due to their legal, factual and medical complexity, as well as the considerable expense involved, it is virtually impossible for a lay person to pursue one successfully on his or her own.
