Hi Anonymous,

Great question and I am sorry you have been dealing with so much pain. Research suggests that women can still have babies with scoliosis although back surgery should be done first. Since you did not have surgery and now are dealing with severe back pain (which is obvious since you are gaining weight and placing a larger burden on your back), you should see your physician regularly to try and have your pregnancy and pain monitored.

As for the explanation: scoliosis is a curvature in your spine (it is different for each individual)
A 24 degree can either be to the right or the left. The sciatic nerve is the largest single nerve in the human body; it runs from each side of the lower spine through deep in the rear and back of the thigh and all the way down to the foot, connecting the spinal cord with the leg and foot muscles.

Now in your case, sciatic pain (or the numbness in the legs) can occur when the nerve roots in the lower spine are irritated or compressed. This is often called a herniated disc. Since every person is different, your treating physician could be more specific about your specific case but that is the generalized explanation. I hope this information helps.

Was your physician concerned about your pregnancy?
