Pelvic fracture still causing pain

I fractured my pelvis 9 years ago. I live in a small town and the doctors saw only one break on the xray. I was in the hospital for 7 or 8 days and then sent home. I was not sent to physio and had no medical treatment other than pain killers. After 6 mos, I finally saw an orthopaedic surgeon and he said there were 3 breaks. I spent years in pain with all the drs telling me there was nothing they could do. I finally found a dr in a larger centre and he performed a sacroiliac joint fusion 2 years ago. The pain is better, but I'm still unable to work. Does anyone have any suggestions?
