Easter 2008 I feel on some stairs that collapsed from the floor they were attached to. I was standing on them and the pulled out from the florr and fell while I was on them. After a month or so I started to have severe back pain radiating into my right hip. This went on for over a year. I went to the chiropractor and had adjustments, thinking it was just my back out of wack. The pain became so severe that I finally couldnt take it anymore and in Sept 2009 requested my pcp to give me orders for xrays. I was found to have Grade 1 anterolisthesis L5 on S1 secondary to bilateral L5 spondylolysis. Also mild to moderate degenerative disc changes L5-S1. I have also have had GYN issues, including polycystic ovaries and tumors. I have been having surgeries every year for the last 3 years for that. After my last surgery 03/03/10, my Dr told me this is the last chance to have a baby, if my husband & I wanted another one. I am 35 years old and we decided that we will try for one. It worked and I am 7 weeks pregnant. I am already expirencing alot of pain, I had to stop my medication that I used to make the pain tolorable. I was on Neurotin300 mg-tid, Flexeril 10 mg-bid, Ibprofin 800-tid. I knew going into this that it is going to be very hard and painful, I guess I just forgot that I had to stop my meds and that the pain will be back. I am concerned about the fact of delivering vaginally verses c-section. Will delivering vaginally cause more damage to my back?
I will be seeing my OB/GYN dr in 2 weeks and I want to bring info with me to discuss with him. I went to see my back orthopedist dr and he "PRN" me untill after the baby is born, unless something emergant arises. But he said to follow with my ob/gyn for now. I have been trying to research this topic and I am not finding much on it, and would appreciate any advice you can give me.
