Pages: 1 Showing 1 - 20 of 24 for scoliosis c section. (0.004 seconds)


... section. In my case, my section was more painful! My whole experience with my section was bad. Not only did I feel everything when my epi wore off, but then they had to put me to sleep cause nothing they did helped. ... (18 replies)
... s she isn't worried about your back issues causing problems, I wouldn't worry much about anything else. As for my back, I have never had surgery, but I have had scoliosis as well as degenerative disc disease for years.......... ... (18 replies)
... I also have scoliosis, and had surgery when I was 14 (I am 27 now)! I have two harrington rods fusing my spine from the bottom of my neck to the top of my butt. My orthepedic surgeon always told me that pregnancy, labor and delivery should be no problem. When I got pregnant last year, I brought my x-rays in to show my o.b. and she hadn't had any experience with it. So... (7 replies)

... Yes, he said that if I wanted to ensure that I had pain relief, the only way he could guarantee that was with a c-section. There are several layers of tissue and spaces that they put the needle through to get the different types of meds into your back. For an epi they stop before the dura and inject the medicine there. If your back is misshapen in anyway (like mine is due to... (18 replies)
... oh Barton, I am so sorry you had to go through that! I asked my Dr about my L5-S1 herniated disc that was operated on 2003 and she said that it was so low that she does not think that the epi would not work. Besides, I haven't had pain was so ever in more than 10 months. Just as God gave it to me, took it away. It took almost 2 years for the pain to ease after that... (18 replies)
... The anesth. recomended you have a c-section since a spinal would be easy? Other than having a vaginal with an epi? "He suggested a c-section since it would be easier for them to do a spinal on me" So, suggested a cesarean so you can have a form of pain relief? (18 replies)
... I have scoliosis too as does my sister. ... (3 replies)
... Yeah, I know the difference between spinals and epis and all that. I was just shocked, I thought you meant he told you to have a cesarean for pain control! I can't imagine ANYONE in their right mind choosing to have a cesarean because an Epi may not work for them, was just a shocker you'll have to excuse me! lol I too suffer from scoliosis.. There are many things that... (18 replies)
... I have not had the surgery, but I do have scoliosis. I am now pregnant with our second baby. With the first, I was able to have an epidural, but it took 3 try to get it in correctly. I will say that my back pain has been worse since that delivery..not sure if that is because of the epidural or from delivery. If I have this second thru natural/vaginal delievry, I plan to...

... With my 2nd child (my 1st VBAC), I went into labor on my own. My water broke at home, at which time I went to the hospital. My labor was progressing VERY slow and I was determined to have a VBAC, and as long as me and baby weren't showing any signs of distress, my OB agreed to let me labor. They did start me on pitocin to help move things along. I attempted an epidural,... (14 replies)
... xinerevelle: OMG, I had back surgery on 7/6/03 --> L5/S1 herniation. I never knew that the epidural could not work. I will bring it up to my OB today that I have an apt. I have all my MRIs I can show it to the anesth. if he needs to see them. Anyway, I am not going down that road just yet. But it is good to bring it up to my OB and see what she thinks. I hope I am not for... (18 replies)
... I had two herniated disks repaird (L4/5 and L5/S1) last year, so my OB sent me to anesthesia to do a "pre-op" type of consultation to make sure they didn't want any additional tests or anything. We were worried that the scarring would impact the ability to put in the epidural. And my doc and I were right. The anesth. told me that it depends on which doc is doing the epi,... (18 replies)
... Ament, don't be too scared, everything will work out somehow or other. If it is going to be too much of a stresser for you to think about a vaginal birth without an epidural, or attempting the epidural, you could talk to your doctor about just scheduling a C-Section. I just REALLY wanted to try for the vaginal birth because I am deathly afraid of getting put under general... (7 replies)
... In my birthing class they said that one option, and probably the safest, was for the mother to be put under general anesthia and then perform a c-section. This eliminates pain due to labor, and having to do a spinal or epidural. I know it probably sounds like you'd be missing out on the process, but it could be the safest option for you and baby. Hope all works out and you... (7 replies)
... Holy crap! What a day YOU had!! :dizzy: My DH is the same...just cranky, bag without food, lol!! Ill bet that was the worst part of the day for you!!! LOL!! I have to ask...or suggest I guess, did you and your OB discuss the after effects of the spinal block?? I have heard that many women or a high percentage of those women who have one suffer from severe, even dibilitating... (930 replies)

... Scoliosis and a floating verbrae (Ok I know that's not the correct term) I just made sure my OB was aware of the issues, actually requested a C-section cause I was SO afraid of screwing my back up with all the pushing....she wouldn't do that but made notes of it in my chart and promised I wouldn't be allowed to labor as long as 'normal' patients before a C-section. I went... (2 replies)
... When I went into the hospital to be assessed for whether I could have an epidural (I have scoliosis) the guy explained that an epidural is for vaginal delivery. You get a tube out your back that they can keep "topping you up" with medication as needed since labour can last for hours. A spinal goes further into the spine and totally numbs you for about 2hrs - used for a... (10 replies)
... The only thing I can say about the hand and finger pain is to consult with your doctor. As for the epidural....I have 3 children and attempted the epidural all 3 times. I had problems with it working all 3 times, but that is because I have a lot of back problems from scoliosis, degenerative disc disease as well as some injuries I've had to my back. With my 1st, it worked... (6 replies)
... Hi Accutane, My OB referred me for a consult at L&D which I waited at for 2hrs until the anesthetist had a few minutes :mad: . Basically he just had me sit on the bed, he felt my spine, had me lay on my side and felt my spine again, and said he didn't see any reason why it wouldn't work for an epidural or spinal. Obviously they wouldn't know for sure until they tried. I... (10 replies)
