pregnancy and back pain

Anyone ever pregnant with a herniated L4 L5 with a slight disc tear? If so, how much pain were you in and how were you able to alleviate the pain. Thank you for your help.

  • I had a discectomy in September 2014 and got pregnant in November. I have now reherniated at the same level with a bulge below. I go to see the surgeon Wednesday and I am so nervous!
