I am scheduled for disc removal L5/S1 and fusion for incredibly painful spondyliothesis and large herniated disc on Oct.1. I have had epidural steroid shots which helped a little. I still require constant pain killers and have trouble sitting or walking much.
I found out I am pregnant today.
Is it possible or adviaable to go through with the surgery? I know there are risks to the baby, but are they more then 9 months of pain killers? This was obviously a complete surprise. And I am not sure what to do.
