    confused

    In 98 I had the fusion surgery, rods and all, for a 60 degree curve. It was reduced to 15 degrees. Well, it appears that my spine is curving again, it is up to 25 degrees. To make my situation just a little more complicated, I am expecting my first child in december. My husband and I are very worried about potential complications, due to my uneven ribcage, unaligned hips, etc. I have asked both my ortho and ob, and the most I get is, "we'll see". Very frustrating. Does anyone know where i can get info about pregnancy with scoliosis? Its not like I have much choice but to wait it out, but I would like for just a little bit of light to be shone on my mind. Right now, we're running blind....

    Pregnancy is a fairly regular topic on this forum. If you do a search on the word, I'm sure you'll find quite a bit. Also, here's a link for the National Scoliosis Foundation's "Medical Update" on the subject:
