I am almost 3 months post op from a T10- pelvis fusion where a screw was inserted into each si joint as an anchor for my long fusion. I've always had si joint dysfunction so I thought this would be helpful but I've had moderate to severe pain in my posterior pelvis since. I know I'm early and my surgeon suggested we could remove the si joint screws but we haven't discussed it further yet.
Has anyone else experienced this and what happened? It seems to be worsening every week and I'm scared I'll have to get another surgery and if the screws are removed there won't be any relief because it will take on the workload for my trunk.
I'm being treated like I should be weaned off my pain meds by now but I don't think those people know I'm not even 3 months post op one of the hardest surgeries to recover from. It makes me question if I'm behind or if this i's normal...
Thanks for your time and sharing your experiences!
