I'm brand new to this forum.
I guess I'm feeling sorry for myself because I'm in intense pain and have been an athlete most of my life. According to 2 physicians, I need L-4 SI ARIF repair I'm unfamiliar with the procedure and the recovery time. (Heck, you're in that much pain who cares?).
I can't think anymore, I am a complete witch. Is there a return to normal? What kind of exercise can you do after surgery?? I'm a triathlete (oops-former).
Any success stories would be greatly appreciated. Heavens, any empathy would be appreciated. I just would love to hear from people who have gone through similar situations and have kept their lives relatively normal.
I'm not usually this pathetic. I promise to help others when I get to that point!
