I have disc herniation at C5/C6 and C6/C7. It occurred 4 months ago and I am
living with slight pain. I had spinal cord compression but a nerve block relieved that
pressure and now I have only occasional sharp pain down my left shoulderblade and
arm. My doctor says that surgery is a possibility, but as I am progressing, it is not
urgent. I am eager to get pregnant, and am wondering if the extra weight will have a
significant effect on my nerves in the affected area.
