    I had a terrible reaction. The hyalgan rolled out of the joint. The shaft where it contects to the head of the bone is eaten away so there are chucks missing!!! I have to keep it wrapped just to bear weight with the use of a cane. I have stress fractures as well. Now I have to go to travel to get a knee replacement. A few months prior to the injection they did an MRI just about a year later the ... Show Full Comment

    Today was my 4th injection of a series of 5. Anyone thinking about getting the injections, ice and relax afterward. My doctor said normal activity was fine but my knee swells up like a balloon for a couple hours after the shots. 36 hours later and I have more movement than I have in years. Worth it in the long run so far.

    After the first series of 3 shots, my knee did feel somewhat better. I seemed to have a wider mobility base then before the shots. After about a month, the feeling better quickly wore off. I have been receiving the shots on a bi-annual basis but the time of better feeling after the shots is about a week. After 5 sets, my doctor told me that it is time for a knee replacement.

    Doctor told me that if the hyalgan did not work my only alternative was knee replacement. Received the series of 3 injections in May and I had no issues with pain from, during or after the injection. While I stll hear a lot of the noise from the knee (popping and grinding), there has been little pain and no swelling since then so this treatment has really made a huge difference. It is now Septem ... Show Full Comment
