SI D Injection. How long does yours provide relief?

I was diagnosed with SID 15 years ago. Because I am diabetic I have to limit my SI joint injections to when I have major flare ups .

I have found that mine varies from injection to injection. I normally will have only 1-2 a year but have had only 1 per year in the past three years. My last one which was done in January did not seem to provide as much relief as I have received in the past.

How long does yours seem to last? Do they always provide the same amount of telief?

Have a magical day!

    I've had injections done twice and both times they lasted no more than two days. It sounds as if you have been fortunate for yours to last so long. The injections were my last resort before we finally landed on surgery and both times I had leakage down into my legs, which is indicative of joints that are too far apart and deteriorating. Unfortunately for me my insurance won't approve surgery so I'm stuck in bed until they do.
