I am an active 66y/o female with bone on bone bilateral knee damage. I was told that I needed surgery so as a last resort I decided to try hyalgan injections. It's been 8 months since I completed series and STILL no pain! I will do the injections again when the pain returns, as I'm sure it will but for now I'm enjoying no pain.

I was having knee pain and had 5 shots. They were wicked expensive and had no effect. Now I have to have both knees replaced and I'm not even 50!
