I was so caught up yesterday in the misery of the doctor appointment I had that I hardly mentioned one HUGE thing. My very positive news to report is that my pubic symphysis fusion surgery was definitely a success. I have mentioned this before but I really want to stress how huge this is for me. I am not disabled anymore! Yes I have terrible SI Joint pain in my back but I’m not using a cane so that can’t be overlooked. Thank you to my surgeon for successfully fusing me in the front! He kept telling me I was a perfect candidate for this uncommon surgery and he wasn’t kidding
My surgeon originally wanted to fuse my pubic bone at the same time as fusing my SI Joint, recently I’ve been wondering if that is the course I should have taken a year ago. But I have to keep reminding myself how horrible the recovery was from 1 fusion surgery it is hard to imagine having two fusions done at the same time. Tackling one surgery at a time and hoping for the best outcome from each is my approach here.
Thank you for everyone’s support!
