Hi everyone, I have been posting about my si joint fusion which I had in december 2010. It was a long and very painful recovery but I stayed positive about it all, and followed my drs instructions to a T. I was nonweight bearing for 3/mths, and didn't so much as put my foot on the ground for that time.. I had incredible support from my family. Whenever I saw my dr, he took x rays and was very happy with the new bone growing. Then I had a CT done 2 weeks ago, and it has been decided that the bone didn't bridge across the joint. Now I have to go through another 6 mths recovery after attempt. When the first fusion was done, my dr told me that he was concerned because my bones are soft and because of that he couldn't tiighten the screws as much as he would have wanted. So as a result, there was micro movement in the joint which prevented the bridging. I'm not sure about how different this surgery will be done to prevent this problem again. I have emailed all my questions to my dr because at the time he told me it had to be redone, my brain froze. To say I'm mortified, depressed, devastated is minimizing how I feel, esp for my family. But at the same time, I'm grateful to have another chance. My main issue now is trying to cope with the stress and anxiety.
