post op ifuse pain

My surgery is Friday an he told me I would feel as if he hit me with sledge hammer. Is this true? I mean like right after you wake up is it bad or just hurts But tolerable? I understand for some si pain is totally gone upon waking up, But what about the surgical site? Thanks can y'all tell I'm nervous? LOL. Mind running 90 to nothing.


  • There are only a couple of us still on here besides myself that have had the iFuse procedure. Like Janiski - Jani and possibly WildlifeBioligistMom - Jennifer but it's been awhile since she has said anything. Do you have facebook? There is a group called SIJD. In the files is a story from BZ Parscale which would be great for you to read. I have another friend who has a blog - website. I can't post that on here but if you want I will PM it to you. Oh!!! I have PM'ed you and made a comment on your other post. Before my procedure while taking pain pills my pain level was throw the roof while on my feet for less then 20 minutes. After the procedure all my si-joint pain was gone. The incision pain and muscle pain might of hit a #6 during the hour while one pain pill wore off and I was waiting for the next one to kick in. But unlike before the procedure it actually took my post-op pain - hurts away for hours. Take care and talk to you later. Diane
    I had the SI-BONE ifuse implant procedure on August 6th 2012.
