Comment from: Hopeful, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: April 16

After 5 years trying so many different things and wasting tons of money, nothing has worked. I am hoping for surgical fusion intervention for sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction and a trapped sciatic nerve. My right side from the hip started with a slight dull ache and has progressed to total weakness, needing a walker 100% of the time. I had to research myself all these years and thanks to finally being able to get insurance, I will demand a specialist trained in these areas. Hope this helps someone!

To Kathy, after eight years of bad pain I finally had sacroiliac (SI) joint fusion and six months later I have my life back. Check into this, the procedure came from Europe and was approved in the US in 2010. There are not many doctors trained in this procedure but you can contact iFuse and they will send a list of qualified doctors in your area. I walk every day, kayak and now shop.
