I am new to this but I'm wondering has anyone had SI joint fused. I have had right side done and a distectomey on the L5 disc. I will be having SI fusion on left side soon and fusing disc L4 and 5 together. How has anyone else done with these surgeries.View Thread
I have been in so much pain I have just let them do whatever they suggest to relieve the pain. On the 30th they will schedule left SI. I think they take my pain meds away right before return time and give mr some new weird stuff I've never heard of. Then I'm iin so much pain when I get back I'm just ready for relief. One SI surgery cost BCBS 24,000$. Thanks for the reply. God bless you.View Thread
