I started these shot in June of 2016. I had so much pain form my sciatica that it was impossible for me to walk. I have had both knees replaced and that mad e sciatic pain a real pain.
The shot last about 5-6 months and I just had my 3rd yesterday. However, sometime in the next 18 months, I may be having both a complete shoulder replacement and replacement of my knee, which was done in 1999. So I need my back in good working order. My doctor and I will be having an interesting chat tomorrow to see if shots plus some PT or surgery would be better for me down the line. The pain from sciatica is excruciating- I have a really high pain tolerance, but this brings me to tears.
