Fusion has been suggested to me twice now but me and my other half would like a family before i had it done as they want to do 6 vertebra which would prevent my back flexing during pregnancy
You may still be able to carry a pregnancy with the fusion. I work for an OB GYN & have had a couple of patients who have had rods in their backs. You would probably have to deliver by c-section but that's a really safe way to deliver, anyway! I would think pregnancy would be less painful, too, with less back problems.???
