Hi! My name is Tarah...I am 30 years old and I have been suffering with back issues for 10 years. I was in a bad car accident where I flipped my car. I have a bulging disc at l4/L5 with DDD as well as SIJD. I was also later diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis. Right now I am currently only on pain medicine. I live on pain medicine and I am looking forward to the day that I no longer have to take it. I am a single mother to 3 beautiful kids so I am getting ready to have bilateral SI joint fusion surgery so I can have my life back. I want to be able to do things with my kids again! I will be having the Si bone Ifuse procedure done, so I am on this forum trying to find anyone else that has had it done to get as much feedback as possible!
