SI joint inflammation after L1-L5 fusion
}:) I recently had 2 spinal fusion, a L4-L5 at first (360 with instrumentation). Six months later I had L1-L5 fused. I am almost a year out from the 2nd surgery and am having low back pain which the surgeon suspects is SI joint inflammation. I am starting acupuncture and if that is not successful than an injection into the joint. Has anyone else had SI joint problems after a fusion??
L4/L5 laminectomy, L4/L5 360 fusion with instrumentation, L1 to L5 fusion, L5/S1 fusion w/ disc replacement, left and right SI joints fused.
