I am also modified at my spine. 26 years old and 11 years post operative. My rods had never given me any issues, that is until I was pregnant with my only son. Shortly after I gave birth to him in January 16 I lost my exes baby weight and with it my lower back pain dissolved. Since then I have gone into business for myself (Again) this time as a landscaper. My body is in the best shape it’s ever been, except my crippling lower back pain that I remember from pregnancy is back. The last week I haven’t been able to move out of bed without excruciating pain. Throughout the day I don’t feel it but something about sleeping causes it to get stiff and I wake up feeling paralyzed (in my lower back). After reading this I feel that it is time to go to the doctor and maybe get x-rays to make sure that I’m not having major complications due to the rods. Any suggestions before I expose myself to further radiation and get X-rays.
