    To Nelsena who had side effects re lumbar pain - I didn't have that after 10 injections (1 in each knee). However, I've had a lot of leg pains - can't walk very long or stand. Have to lie down for while until it subsides. My last injections were 12/31/08 and I haven't gotten relief as far as my knees concerned either. Has anyone else had this weird reaction?

    The first two injections were extremely painful as the fluid went into my knee joint but the pain stopped immediately when the needle came out. The third to fifth injections were tolerable. The knee pain lessened the first week and now, 2 months later is totally gone and function much improved. Definitely worth it!

    After two knee surgeries, several therepy session and years of pain, my Dr. injected my knees with Hyalgan. I was shocked as to how much it helped. I am almost knee-pain free for up to six months. I have continued with these injections every six months over the past 3 years. It sure beats surgery.

    Previously used only 3 injections, this time used 5. Much better results. Also tried others on the market with no relief. Hyalgan has worked best by far.

    Comment:
    This treatment was administered one year ago with the prospect that it would last that long, and has given me relief up until now - almost exactly one year. It was easily administered, albeit sometimes painfully but the results were good. Now, if they could just get it to last longer.
