Patient :My wife had a L5-S1 microdiscectomy April 25, 2014. We have been struggling with infertility and our RE believes IVF is needed.
What is the risk of disc reherniation with IVF and pregnancy in general? is there a time period in which the risk is less? We did already ask our spine surgeon and he said he would not discourage us from trying but did not give any hard info.
