When will the pain end?



  • Hi Bren - I've had 23 years of terrible SI pain, with success from some of the RFAs. They often took three months or so before the pain went down from before the procedure. Please see my note about whether or not to get SI fusion surgery (DON'T) on a recent post. It's been the biggest mistake of my life. It's very difficult for anyone to understand this debilitating pain and how it affects our lives if they haven't gone through it. Unfortunately, SI joint pain is often invisible on MRIs, CT scans, X-rays. After 17 years, I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. I could still cope most days (with lots of tricks - ice, heat, TENS, creams, pain medication), but the aftermath of the SI fusion surgery (it's been 10 months) has been indescribable. I'm crossing my fingers (and toes!) for you -
