SI fusion

Hello, my sacroilitis is flaring again after getting the steroid injection. The spinal Dr is suggesting either a neurotomy or fusion of the SI joint. Has anyone had these procedurers before? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Have you had ablations done? Just thinking about options in addition to surgery

The Dr mentioned either neurotomy or fusion. I believe the neurotomy is the same as an ablation. I will know more in morning when i go in for the numbing of the SI joint. Inalresfy knoe i habe bilateral sacroiliitis. It was comfirmed by the MRI. Apparently, this is part of the process. This is all new to me.

Sorry for all those typos.

Haha…I assumed you were partially sedated already! I hope you get the pain relief that is much needed.
