Hello from JustAnswer.
Since these cold sensations have been happening for two months, that would mean that they developed four months after the procedures. It is not normal to develop a cold sensation four months after surgery or an epidural that is due to the surgery or the epidural. Neurologic symptoms can occur as a complication of surgery or an epidural, but they would occur much sooner than four months later.
It is common for someone with spine disease to develop a variety of neurologic symptoms, including altered temperature sensation. However, this is due to the underlying spine disease and can occur whether there has been surgery or an epidural or neither. We do not consider any of the symptoms that occur with spine disease to be “normal”, but it certainly is a symptom that would be a part of the disease process that you are known to have.
So this is something that is seen with spine disease, but would not be due to the surgery or the epidural.
