I fuse
charl1942 posted:
Has anyone here had an I-fuse? That is where the illum is fused to the sacrum with three titanium rods because of damage to the joint. How successful were you? I am scheduled to have this done in August. This doctors success rate is 80%. He says sometimes people have had the pain so long they have this mindset and he has no idea how many this is. After 7 years of pain I am ready to give this a try. I did have success with a steroid injection for a few days and now we know we have our place.

Hello, Charl.

I have no experience with this procedure but I just wanted to say that I am happy that you finally have found a solution that may work. I know you have been in this terrible pain for so long and pray this would be successful for you.

Please keep us updated.
