Limit treatment.: If that effective rx is effective, complete a 3-4 week course of treatment. However, if the problem does not resolve, have it further worked up beyond the xrays. You do not want to stay on ultram for prolonged period. For most problems, i give it 3-4 weeks to get better or resolve, before more intense workup. ...Read more

Possibilities:: While i rarely take iliac crest bone graft because it usually isn't necessary, when i do, my patients never complain of pain from the graft site. It definitely could be si joint pain, you should have your si joint evaluated with the 5 provocative tests for si instability. If at least 3 are positive, then an si joint injection, radioablation, or minimally invasive fusion may alleviate your pain. ...Read more

Typically "small cut" (whatever that means may be different for different cases, and going home typically depends upon how you feel, genral health, length of surgery etc....Talk to your doctor pick up the phone and call the office of where your surgery is being done. ...Read more
