Hi, I am on this site for the first time and would like to hear more about what you're going through. I am an RN, but haven't worked for over 6 months b/c of chronic SI pain on the right. I had fusion with bone grafts; 1x in May/09 and again !2/09; L4-5,L2-3. I am at my wits end and just started PT last week. Is your pain on the side that the bone graft was removed from? Do you still have to take PO pain med? I saw my GP last week to get a second opinion in the work and he set me up for a bone scan and a consult with a neurologist. He also suggested the PT and Pain Clinic. My surgeries were done by an Orthopedic Surgeon;He sent me to have it injected with Marcaine and Kenalog but it only helped for a few days.Trust me..I feel your pain! I will keep you posted on how the PT goes.
