I had my 6 month checkup last week. The good news is I'm fusing. The bad news is I've been having bad butt pain on the right side. I thought it might be my Periformis but my doctor thinks SI joint. I start PT tomorrow and he's going to try injections soon. Suddenly about 5 days ago I started getting intense pain in the back of my thigh where it meets my butt when sleeping. It wakes me around 3 every morning and I can't get back to sleep. I'm miserable! The worst part is I'm going on my "dream" cruise in 3 days. Any suggestions or ideas?
