My third injection is scheduled for this Friday. Please wish me luck. My first injection was back in September of 2008. It lasted about 18 months. My second one was last May, and only lasted about two weeks. The sciatica pain is worse than ever, especially in the morning. Have been using heat, doing stretching and strengthening exercises, walking, and taking anti-inflammatories. Can't wait until this is done, and my pain goes away at least for a while -- but preferably a year.
