SI Joint fusion worst surgery I could have had. Chronic pain on left side from neck down to foot with intermittent on r side. Surgery to repair a torn in to rotater cuff l side due to fall. Way to may steroid injections, now a diabetic due to more than 25 injections over a period of 18 months. Insomina due to side effects of pain meds. Pain is for most part not controlled. Over this!
