Since my original Dr/surgeon is leaving, had to find a new Dr and was referred to one dealing with spine and SI joint treatment. It was a very long 3 hr drive to see this Dr as I can't bear the pain with long drives. It felt I was keeping him from his other patients. He told me SI joint fusions haven't been successful with many cases but that is the only treatment for this kind of diagnosis. He wants a 2nd opinion and s sending me to a specialist who deals primarily in SI joints I sure hope someone can do something soon. The pain is so bad and now in my waist as well. I asked this Dr about the extreme pain in both my legs and numbness in my feet. Primarily told me to see what this new Dr says. I don't care for this Dr, seems I was wasting his time
