    Sacroiliac injection with cortisone and marcaine

    I see the doc next week for 3 week follow-up

    I have about 70 % relief, if he wants me to have another one I will
    It was scary without being " knocked out" as with the lumbar epidurals that I had in the past.
    It was a bit painful, but in NYC at this # 1 orthopedic hospital in the country
    They do not use sedation or any kind of general anesthesia for injections
