SI Joint surgery recovery

I have been fighting chronic pain for 8 years and its due to my SI joint. I have been doing some reading about recovery after surgery and seen many points of view but if you had the surgery and not other people but you had the surgery what was the recovery like and how long did it take to recover from it?


  • I have been told disc replacment you can be back at work in 4 weeks.
    Spinal fusion can take 6-12 months.
    im in a similar position with chronic lower back pain. My l5s1 is pretty much 98% worn and has impingements. (Bone on bone)
    I have seen 2 specialist for both procedures and bith drs want to operate...i have postponed the op now for 3 years, rarely medicate, but do a lot stretching and swimming...still have my bad days all the same. Good luck
