Fusion and prompt Pregnancy

has anyone had a lumbar fusion and then fallen pregnant less than a year later? Are there any forums here you can refer me to?
I can't find any info on the web, are there any success stories out there?
I had l4/5 fused in April and was pregnant by November. I'm nervous that 1) I have no idea if I'm fused and now can't have an X-ray. 2) I lost a lot of weight, it helped and I was almost pain free. Now the weight and pain are creeping back and 3) I don't want to be forced to have a c-section if an obgyn doesn't understand the surgery I've had...
Any help from anyone with experience appreciated.
My neurosurgeon retired and I'm not sure who to talk to!!
