when is it time to go to the emergency room? my legs are so weak I can barely walk, and the pain in my SI joints is terrible. I try to just get up out of my hospital bed and it is horrible. And I know what pain is from having nine lumbar back surgeries, and passing seventy kidney stones, but this ranks right up there with them all. I've had a series of three staight months of injections into my SI joints hoping it would help, but only helps for about two weeks. Doctor says the SI joints can be fused, and they have had some sucess with this, but I am already fused from S-1 to L-3 and don't know if I want to do this. Is there anybody out there that has had this done, and did it do any good. Thanks
11 back surgeries, fused from L3/S1. Now have four herniated disc in neck from C3/C7. And two new herniated disc in lumbar at L1-2, L2-3. Passed 73 kidney stones, five surgeries on left ankle that now has seven screws in it and is fused. Both shoulders
