Hello @jmweissler. I'd like to invite @mdmo and @jrbuff who specifically talked about having or considering a SI joint fusion. Here is another discussion you also may be interested in as well – Spinal fusion at L4 to L5 due to spondylolisthesis https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/spinal-fusion-at-l-4-l5-due-to-spondylolisthesis/.

@jmweissler, if you are comfortable sharing, you have mentioned many fusion surgeries, other than your osteoporosis playing a role, how has your recovery been from your previous surgeries?

It's a tough go.Painful. Unfortunately, I never really healed from the prior surgery before the next fusion was done. At the moment, I still have terrible pain in the L5-S1 area as well as moderate pain in my neck. I am hoping that the SI Joint fusion relieves at least some of the pain. I am keeping Tylenol in business. I am very interested to learn about open bilateral SI Joint fusion.
