Spinal Cord Stim for SI pain?

Has anyone used a spinal cord stimulator for SI pain and did it work? I have been told that I would not be a good candidate for SI fusion as I have a connective tissue disorder and even my scar tissue is weak.

I've had excellent results from wearing an SI belt every day. My SI joints would lock up at the drop of a hat. Now they don't.
