Just thought I would update everyone- Oct. 3rd our son arrived! My one year anniversary for Charite L4-5 is Oct. 24th. Less than one year I gave birth (vaginal delivery- yes, with epidural) to a perfectly healthy boy! James and I are fine. Several hours after birth x-rays were taken of my back and sent to my surgeon. So far so good!I certainly know one thing-I could have never have gone through a delivery the way I was before surgery!
