In brief: Varies

Sacroiliac joint pain lasts until it's fixed, and this depends on the cause.
Simple arthritic si joint pain can be helped with steroid injections into the joint, and much longer with radiofrequency ablation of the medial and lateral branch nerves. Best to see a physiatrist or other spine specialist, or a rheumatologist.

One useful device is a sacra-iliac belt system with pad which might control symptoms during the day when up and about.
