After 15 years of pain and praying for a permanent treatment, I am having the IFUSE SI joint surgery on the 3rd of January, I have had all the treatments except nerve ablation. I will keep anyone informed of my progress, and you can e-mail me if anyone has other questions. My doctor believes that it is important to be very conservative after recovery, and feels that some of the poor outcomes could be due to too much activity too soon. Therefore, I will have 6 weeks of no weight bearing on my right side. Any suggestions of how to spend my time are greatly appreciated. I am VERY active outdoors, so wish me luck. We will be celebrating Christmas, and hope that everyone else has a great holiday season.
