Re: Strange problem after surgery on SI joints
There is a lot of good information on the internet pertaining to CRPS. I hope you don't have it but whenever I see someone describe pain where the skin is so sensitive, I think about the possibility of CRPS.
Every time we have any procedure on the spine, injection or surgery, we run the risk of nerve damage. Any time the space around the spinal column or cauda equina is invaded, there is a risk. Problems that can arise include these generalized pain syndromes such as arachnoiditis and complex regional pain syndrome.
As far as I am aware, these complex nerve pain syndromes are handled with pain management. If your surgeon doesn't know much about them, you should be able to find an interventional pain management doctor who will be able to help.
But, it may turn out to be another issue...so don't worry at this point.
