Pregancy after Prodisc???

Hello,

I went to a specialist today and he said the only chance I have of improving (and getting back to a "normal" activity level) is a 2-level Prodisc. Upon reading the protocol for the surgery, it says one should not have the surgery if they are pregnant or intend to become pregnant within 3 years.

Prodisc has been in trials in the U.S. for only a short time. Has anyone had this procedure in Europe and then gotten pregnant after the 3 years? If so, please let me know what your experience was with this.

Thanks
