I was wondering if any of you have had children following a discectomy? I had my L5S1 discectomy a year and a half ago and we are thinking about trying for a child soon. However I have been told that following my above surgery its best if a Caesarean is planned and I am concerned about the Anasthesia - as far as I know I cannot opt to have Spinal or Epidural because of my discectomy. I have 3 more prolapsed discs however I have been exercising and attending pilates classes to strengthen my back. So I will definitely need to be more careful if I do get preg. What anasthesia have you had and any tips are welcome! I dont wish to be under general anesthesia and miss our baby being born!
