The pain robbed me of almost everything I loved to do. Today I feel great and I have regained my mobility and independence.Connect with Sharron
Sharon had improvement of her leg pain following her lumbar fusion surgery. Later, she noticed increased pain in the lower back, right buttocks and tailbone areas. The pain was worsened with sitting and standing and the only place she was moderately comfortable was lying in bed.
In January 2013, Sharron received a bilateral SI joint arthrodesis using the iFuse Implant System. The day after her surgery she was feeling significantly better. The incision sites were sore, but she felt stable and best of all, the SI joint pain was gone.
