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.

Comment:
After my 1st injection, my knee got so swollen and stiff, I couldn't bend it. It hurt, and I said never again. The next week, my Dr said to try 1 more. I really iced it down for hours and stayed off it. So far so good, 2 days later. I was told it was an allergic reaction, but I think it was also because I went shopping after and didn't ice it. I will continue unless the swelling and pain r ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have gotten the 5 shot seried for at least 8 years. My insurer would only authorize again after 9 mos from last shot. So I usually get the round once a year. It doesn't make me an athlete but it certainly returns the quality of life I want to have. I am usually pain free unless I strenously exert.
