I've had 2 back surgeries and a neck surgery in the past 3 years. Since January of this year I have had allot of pain on my right side in the back and my surgeon says it's the S1. He set me up to have an injection this Friday. I am very fearful in having this done. I have soft bones from Osteoporosis, and I ended up in ICU after my neck fusion from the graft they tried to take from my left hip.
As far as the pain, how will they know if this is going to work? I did have an MRI in January, but for the past 3 weeks the pain has been so hard to bare, and it feels like a sharp knife stabbing me in the butt and hip when I try to sit. Hard to even sit on the toilet.
During some X-RAYS I had on March 20th when the tech. had me lay on my back with my knees bent, I couldn't let my right leg and groin fall to the right for the pictures. Does this sound like a S1 problem or my hip & groin? I'm confused.
Please, if someone has had the injections, let me know what I'm in for as I already experience allot of pain in this area.
