Does anyone have SI pain that was resolved without surgery (meaning SI joint fusion)?
I am fused L1-S1 and the block of bone sitting on my SI joint is too much for it. It was injured originally in the accident and now things have come full circle.
I have had 2 cortisone injections, the gold standard for SI joint pain and both provided temporary relief.
Now I have a lot of pain but my surgeon does not want to do a fusion and has sent me to a new PT who has modified my core strengthening routine. I got some relief at first but now seem to be back to my old pain level. I have had prolotherapy and rhyzotomies in the past with no results.
Anyone with similar problems??
L4/L5 laminectomy, L4/L5 360 fusion with instrumentation, L1 to L5 fusion, L5/S1 fusion w/ disc replacement, left and right SI joints fused.
