Hi all

One more day to go before my next surgery. Have thought long and hard about this one ( sacroiliac joint fusion) but I am in so much pain so I feel my options are very limited. It's only five months since I had the other one done.

Will just be glad when it's over now. I will post when I get home, hopefully Sunday but last time I ended up being in hospital for two weeks.

I just pray this helps and my back problems improve.
