I'm 18 years old and have had Sacroiliac joint dysfunction for around 18 months and have tried Physio, been on: cocodamol, lyrica, tramadol, ibuprofen, paracetamol, (and another one I can never remember the name of), heat patches and ice packs, had cortisone injections on two different occasions and am booked in for another one in the following weeks with a new consultant.
I have been offered the surgery an have been told that it will be up to me after this injection and although I think it's probably the best thing - I'm not sure whether that's just because all I ever read is horror stories of the pain getting worse over time; as I'm still young, my parents don't seem to think it's a good idea but the only reason they think that is because they are certain the pain will just go away one day and they're worried about the effects surgery will have on me later in life.
Has anyone got any information (potentially from insight) that may be helpful in making this decision??
I really need the help!!
