Hi. I had open sacropelvic fusion in Oct. 2019. This was my 17 th fusion over 12 surgeries. SI joint pain can come from many sources. Was your surgery Minimally Invasive or Open. Do U have instrumentation? Healing takes a year at least. I still have si joint pain & expect that it will never go away but it is much better than before the surgery.

Thanks for your advice, I just read your posts re: your SI and fusions. I can’t imagine going through what you did. So you’re pain is better since your SI fusion? I had an L4-5 fusion in January, it’s been 3 months. I believe I had the TLIF, with a bone graft from my IC, he added bone growth stimulator; my scar is about 6 inches long, so I don’t know which one that means I had, open or MI.
I have DDD, and osteoarthritis, osteopenia when checked 2 years ago. I have rods and screws.
