Scoliosis and ifuse surgery

I have moderate lumbar scoliosis and a shorter leg. I am about eight months post op ifuse. I traveled for the surgery, but it appears some of the local docs here are nervous about si Fusion with scoliosis. I am having additional problems with facets that we think were there before but have gotten worse. Is this contraindicated for scoliosis ..are there any others out there that have had or are contemplating the surgery with scoliosis?

    Did the Ifuse surgery help you? I to have scoliosis, one leg shorter and have been suffering from debilitating SI pain for 5 months now. Have had 3 injection in SI joint, 1 time in piriformis muscle that also became injured and am tring physical therapy for the third time after having repeat setbacks in pain level. Have found a orthopedic doc who does surgery, but wants to try pt again and if that does not work RFA/burning nerves around SI joint and facet joints which I have arthritis and pain as well before thinking about surgery. I am soooo scared and desperate to find people who have had the new ifuse done to find out if their results were good or not. I am in constant pain and my life is turned up side down dealing with this. Please reply.
