If you are pregnant, congrats. I have grade 2 Spondylolithesis, and a healthy 19-mo-old little girl. The pain during and after pregnancy was tremendous. My pregnancy was complicated with too much amniotic fluid, so my back was under more strain than it would have been under a normal pregnancy. I'm sure every patient has a different experience, but having the condition does not mean your baby is at risk.

Hi there,
Your question made me think of this article: http://www.spineuniverse.com/experts/spo...

It's not about spondylosis, but maybe it will help you out.

Best of luck!

BUT any how, I am 28 and I know 30 is coming, I have a ferility disorder that they saying I can't get pregnant but I am thinking about all this now , I have spondy.... for short 45% slippage, I cant get into a orthro doc because UTB here in TEXAS .. well S...K... they wont see me until I loose weight they got my files and know its not because I am over weight, yes that a part of it but I've lost 100lbs and working on it, I just want to learn more on it.. I want a baby , I know already how hard its going to be for me to raise a child, I have 2 nieces I care for part time... and for awhile full time. They keep me going! SWIMMING is the best option and has help wonders but I have soooo many health problems... I Ok wondering if CSECTION is better options... for US women , considering, recovery i know for me would be slow! I had car accident I couldnt walk for almost 4 months! walking now because of swimming! and my nieces! lol ! well what is your out takes.... give me all the knowledge you have learned! It took me 2 yrs to get someone to look! a foot doctor find mine! grrr i want to sue the first doctor! so how do i also get a grade? cant wait to hear replys, wish u all the best...

I had surgery for spondy when I was 21. I carried 3 full-term babies, the last one 9 pounds. So yes, it can be done. I will add this though that when I was diagnosed, the doctor said I wouldn't be able to carry children if I didn't have the fusion. That really scared me and was the deciding factor in whether or not to have the fusion.

Yes you can! I had a baby boy four years ago with 15 + year history of back problems, including spondylosis. It complicates things and you may have more pain, but you can do it! My boy was full term and healthy and I am so happy to have him. He makes my life better.

PS: I was told I would never have a baby. That tells you doctors do not know everything!
It was due to endometreosis so bad there was too much scarring, but at age 42, I was pregnant and very happy to be so despite the back problems.

thanks to all the feed back! my nieces keep me going and I just think a child would be such a blessing! although my nieces would be sooooo jealous but i got love for all them! the next thing i am researching cuz i heard that it takes a longer time to recover when u have spondy. (for short) and have a baby ... would a c-section be a better option for u and the risk and recovery?
