Hello fellow Spineys! Just wnated to give you all an update.

According to my Dr. I am fused. However, the SI joint is STILL giving me problems. I had an ESI in my SI in February which provided 24 hours of relief. My Dr then recommended nerve ablation and my insurance denied me saying that "there was nor scientific evidence that it was successful" :P Anyway, I have good days and bad days. but I do ot know what to do next.My Dr, does not do SI fusions as he says they ahve a low success rate. Even though it is 15 months since my fusion, I still tire easily and can not run.

Anyone have similar experiences??


  • Although I can't contribute anything medically, I just wanted to say "Hi" and thanks for the update. Good to see you posting again. I'm sorry about your not knowing what to do - hopefully you'll get some suggestions or thoughts from some of the kind folks here.
