I have 2 S I Joint Fushions. The first never healed so they went in and packed bone around it. I now am in the worst pain than I was. It has been 3 months and I am in constant pain. My Doctor won't even help me with the pain. He says I'm just a Surgeon and their is nothing else I can Do. So what am I supposed to do now? Any advice appreciated

  • Hello there! I am sorry to hear about the issues you are facing, it doesn't sound like much fun. To be honest, I would say that you should find a different spine surgeon for a second option and help. Bring X-rays, MRIS, medications and such so they know your problems. Do you take medication for the pain? Did they prescribe you opioids? (OxyContin, Percocet, etc.) You could also go to an ortho, and see what they can do for you. Have you had physical therapy or have they told you not to do any exercises?
