I have had lower back pain since I was 14. I had 2 blown out discs and minor si pain, which all got gradually worse for 20 years. I finally gave in and had an L5,L4,S1 fusion two years ago which took care of my disc pain however my si joint pain after the surgery has been excruciating. I have been in severe pain walking, bending and lifting. At worst my back has gone out to the point where I have not been able to get out of bed for up to five weeks at a time. I have been to chiropractors, physical therapy, pain management and even had both SI joints fused all to no avail. I'm wondering if anybody has had any experiences similar to what I'm dealing with and has found any relief.
