Very individualized: The procedures you mentioned are very rare and pelvic instability is highly variable presentation. The best thing to do is to schedule a visit with an obgyn who can talk to your surgeon and perhaps and orthopedic surgeon to coordinate a plan for you and assess your risk, .

Depends: What approach release did you have? Pregnancy can possibly increase pressure on the nerve near the end. Vaginal delivery can possibly cause nerve injury. Both of these are possibilities but not definites. I would recommend consideration of C-section with delivery.
