Hi all. Hope everyone is well. I had a Tlif surgery done on my l5 s1 disc back in August last year. It was to fix a large disc tear. Fast forward 5 and a half months and my pre surgery issues are gone. However 2 months after surgery i noticed a new pain felt further down into my buttocks. To cut a long story short i had a ct scan and it showed osteoarthritis in both si joints but right side worse. I have had 2 si joint injections and both of them had no effect at all. I am able to walk and stretch everyday however both of these cause me more pain. Sleeping has become a big problem as any movement in bed even lying still is painful. Any amount of bending forward causes more pain 2. Housework is a big problem also. I am still unable to work. I have done extremely physical work since i was 17. Looking for others in the same boat or any comments. Thanks. Adam 33 years old
