Hi..I am several months post op ifuse surgery on left and screw fixation on right. I was extremely debilitated before surgery ..only able to walk around house. Standing was very difficult. I have less pain now in the si joint and weight bearing is much easier there. However I am still sorting through many other issues that got worse. I also have moderate lumbar scoliosis. I am having facet related pain and also issues with pubic symphysis. I am hoping to find support for this surgey with scoliosis. My team told me that si problems were common with scoliosis but I have yet to find one that has had the si surgery. My scoliosis is not bad enough for surgery. Thanks!
