Posted , 4 users are following.
Is anyone else going through this or know the answer to my topic questions ????? And is there anything that can be done without surgery ? ... I'm 37 have herniated discs l5-s1 and cauda equina .. I am pregnant and due in a month in a half .. it's actually so painful .. I've had other children before the cauda equina (just milder disc issues) and was fairly normal and both vaginal deliveries. Recently A neurologist said they were surprised I was still holding up w/o surgery yet . I do pt.and chiropractic which only temperarly help then I'm in pain all over again including the shooting nerve pain . No one could ever tell me with both cauda equina and the disc issues if I'd improve or be worse with my pregnancy , from the begining i had asked alot of questions but all that was said is it could go either way there was no definite answer. I fortunalty havent lost any bladder / bowel function but In these last 2 - 2 1/2months of my pregnancy have been the worse with the discs and cauda equina issues especially in bad weather. And last of all Does anyone know how each case is handled, what if any meds are given especially if you haven't had surgery yet and want to do another vaginal birth if its even possible ????
