Post Very Interested in SI Issues

Hi Mark,

I have an interest in SI joint issues as I feel that I am suffering from this as well as my back issues. I had x-rays taken a few years ago & I found out from the report (not from my doctor, surprise) that there were sclerotic changes in the SI joints.

I had an SI joint injection last November, but had maybe a 20% improvement in pain. I have to wonder if my back pain prevented me from feeling any additional relief from the injection.

I still have a little "hip" pain since my fusion surgery but it's only been 3 1/2 weeks. Guess we'll have to see if it resolves itself over the next few months.

Thank you for the info & I look forward to hearing more updates on this issue.
