back pain after first foot surgery?!

I am 48 years old, born with flat feet. Last year I had surgery to correct one of them, the next surgery is scheduled soon. After the first surgery, which went well, I developed BACK PAIN WORSE THAN EVER!! (I had pain before, but nothing like this). It's on the right side, while my surgical foot was the left. At first I thought it was from using the knee scooter, but it's been a year and it's only getting worse.
My chiropractor and back specialist are telling me it is probably the sacroiliac joint, but no one can tell me if it's related to my foot. (Drives me crazy, doctors are so specialized, foot docs don't know about backs, back doctors stay away from the feet...)
I am going for a spinal injection next week, as PT and chiropractic have failed. Surgery for my right foot is scheduled in January... Will foot surgery help the problem, as at least then my feet will be 'equal'? Or, will it be even worse because I will have to sit so much, which always aggravates it? Anyone else ever heard of this problem?
