In Reply to: Oh yeah, P.S. - regarding X-rays posted by Jill D on December 03, 2000 at 20:58:17:

: I forgot to mention this....chances are your doc will tell you to wait longer to get pregnant, because you will have to have several X-rays during the months following your fusion, so your doc can see if new bone is growing and fusing the way it's supposed to. You don't want to expose a fetus to all those harmful X-rays.

Thanks for your input, I thought it would be about 6 months to a year, I am still hoping I am doing the right thing when it comes to this surgery. But I know I cant live this way. Just hopefully it wont be worse after the surgery. When you had your surgery, did they use bone from you or a bone bank? They are using a donor bone for me, but I have heard it can absorb into you.
They also told me its very rare. I am just really scared about all this. Thanks again.
