    Red face Pregnant for the first time! Birth stories please.

    Hello everyone!

    It's been a while since I've been on here! I hope everyone is doing well!

    I'm 6 months pregnant with my first baby. I had my spinal fusion back in November 2000. I'm looking for birth stories from all you mamas with fused spines! Finding information for ladies like us has been a challenge. I'm sure this has been covered before, so if there is already an existing thread if you could direct me there too, that'd be greatly appreciated! <3

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Lisa,

    I was fused in 1963 T4-L2. I became pregnant at the age of 30 in 1980....17 years later.. Brad was 9 lbs 4 oz and I had absolutely no pain during my pregnancy. I did have a C-section. Good luck. You will be fine.
    1963 Fusion T4-L2 for congenital scoliosis. It was a bone graft and not instrumentation
    1989 to Present....Have had chronic pain. MRI's show severe neural foraminal stenosis L2-S1, rotational scoliosis lumbar spine over 40 degrees, compression of nerve roots L5-S1, Broad Based Herniations L4-L5, L5-S
    Surgery scheduled with Dr. Bridwell on December 11, 2012
    December 11, 2012 Had surgery with Dr. Bridwell. He fused L4-L5 with rods and screws.
