Same issue for me. Now the SI section is a24 hour per day squeeze on the sciatica. Constant leg, hip, foot pain. I will not consider another surgery for reasons already posted. The best thing for me is yoga, physical therapy, less stress, warm weather, and very strong RX at night. Use a morphine/Valium suppository so I get faster action close to the region, and sleep well now. That alone is a huge help. Will do a steroid injection next week.
