Has anyone ever had this experience? And if so, do you know anything about SI joint fusions? Do they carry the same chance of improving the pain as any other back surgery?
They know that is where the pain is coming from. But even if they know that is the source of the pain, and then they fuse it... will that guarantee that the pain will go away? My guess is no, just like all other back surgeries.
L4-L5 / L5-S1 fusion surgery on August 20, 2012
Four months after surgery and pain level is worse than pre surgery levels
Doctor says fusion looks good. Is recommending SI joint shot to help with pain. PT makes me feel worse.
