I began to feel relief after the 2nd injection. Had a total of 5 over a 5 week period. Pain free; best decision I ever made! It has been 10 months and the only time I have knee pain is if I stand or shop for long periods of time. Ride a bike for exercise which is much better than walking!

My knees feel as though they have a heavy "load" in them. I have a terrible time getting up after I have been sitting for even a short period of time> I am an Accountant. I sit a lot. It feels like I have a big wad of "play dough" in my knees. I am VERY dissatisfied and disappointed.

Comment:
I am very disappointed. Previously I felt weakness in my knees due to loss of cartlidge. I really did not have unbearable pain. Actually I only had pain a day or two prior to a storm coming in. Now, after 5 injections, I can barely get up or down; my knees feel wobbly and overall my walking is poor, and I use a cane for fear of falling. I don't know what to do next. I hate to think of sur ... Show Full Comment
