I was very scared to get the shots. Needed it in both knees. Just had it done 4 hours ago and it was nothing like some of the people said. they numbed the area with a freezing spray and injected the needle on the side of the knee. It felt like a regular shot. Not really painful at all and very quick. I'm hoping I get the benefits from the shots but won't know for a few weeks.If you relax y ... Show Full Comment

It was too late to turn back. My knee was uncomfortable after the shot (felt like a wedge of rubber was stuffed in my knee joint). But I kept telling myself, you've gone from no cartilage to what amounted to full cartila ... Show Full Comment
