Spinal anaesthetic numbs your nerves to give you pain relief in certain areas of your body, and usually lasts between one to three hours.
Your anaesthetist will insert the needle, inject drugs through it and then remove the needle (see figure 1). It should not be painful, although it can be uncomfortable. A spinal anaesthetic usually lasts between one to three hours. The anaesthetist will put enough drugs through the needle to make sure that it lasts longer than the expected length of the operation.
A spinal can be used for most people, usually giving a safe and effective form of pain relief both during and after your operation.
