Herniated L4 disk and labor
My L2-L4 disk are all herniated out, with the L4 to 9mm. Ive had surgery on the L4 previously in July 09', a discectomy. Only to have the same disc herniate back out in the same place 2 months later, with an extra 2mm on it. I am also 37 weeks pregnant. My biggest concern is when its time to deliver. I am afraid of messing things up in my lower back worse then it already is, what with the pushing and straining involved in a natural birth. I would like very much to be able to deliver my baby naturally, but don't wont to take any chances of loosing control over my bowels and sexual organs, for my back surgeon said thats the next step if they were to progress any further. Is there any kind of threat or should I be worrying myself about this. My husband and I have been throwing the idea around of a c-section, but I dont want to do a surgery like that if its not going to be necessary.
