I had a L4-S1 TLIF in February of this year. Prior to surgery, my surgeon told me that I could start trying to conceive 6 months after surgery, but they prefer 1 year. My husband and I plan to wait the full year.
Has anyone gotten pregnant after a fusion? How was it? Should I request a c-section? I really don't want to mess up my back anymore and I am not sure if I can have an epidural... I know my surgeon is the person I need to ask about these things, but I don't see him again until August and right now I am just thinking ahead
Also, any recommendations as to what I should be doing now to prepare my back for pregnancy? Other than walking and PT.
