Please help! I am a very disparate 23 year old man. In august of 2012 i was working as heavy equip. mechanic when i woke up one morning with some sharp pain on either top side of my gluteus. Long story short it was thought my si joints was to blame from an atv accident that happened in 08. I had a steroid injection into the facet joints in my back first. That only made my pain worse. Then it was on to the si joints with 2 more series of injections. Those worked for about 2 hrs so im guessing it was the local anesthetic taking the pain away. Went on to a osteopathic dr and he gave me an si belt. Said my si joints were torn. He would line my pelvis up, apply the belt and send me on my way. Belt worked for about 3 months then stopped. Started to look towards surgical help. Had a fusion done to my left si joint in may of 2014. My pain has doubled shortly after. The surgeon makes it hard to see him and ive tried multiple things to relieve my pain since. Including more injections, PT, medications, and nothing has worked. Also after my fusion i found that my left leg was one half of an inch shorter than my right. So its no wonder i couldn't stay lined up in my pelvis. Im concerned that when the si joint was fused it was fused with pelvis at the wrong angle because i didn't know about my leg length discrepancy yet. Ive been tested for every known disease that causes my pain. After the si joint fusion my pain stopped being sharp on the gluteus and focused on my lumbar part of my back. Anyone know if the fusion can be reversed? Ive looked for drs that have done reversals but come up short?I had two screws put in the joint not the ifuse dowels. I am currently on 10 mg of oxycodone four times a day and that only now is taking the edge off. I live in maine and every Dr i get doesn't know what is going on and cant help. Does anyone know of any good Dr that has done fusions but has also seen complications like this and has done reversals of the si fusion? Or maybe yourself or a friend has gone through a similar experience. I have been out of work for over two years because of this problem. It has cost me everything i loved doing and has effected my family in a negative way as well. Please. I need help. Im willing to go anywhere and try anything. Thank you so much!
