Hi all. I've suffered SIJ pain and lower back pain for over 4 years since last pregnancy. I'm taking morphine daily along with diclofenac paracetamol and antidepressants.
IVery been getting more and more flare ups recently where I literally can't move for the pain. We've 5 kids and the youngest 3 are under 8 so I'm always on the go with school runs etc. However each flare up has left me in hospital for over ten days. I'm considering asking for my SIJ to be fused and just go for the wheelchair option to save the pain. Surely it's a better option than being in chronic pain all the time. I'd be able to do more with kids albeit from.a wheelchair. Has anyone had fusion done or have any experience of this at all? All help great fully received. Thank you x
