Well, this is my second go-round of getting the injections. I have a very bad problem with my kneecap. It has junk under it and it is worn down on the sides from playing volleyball for many years. So, I have athritis in my knee, also. I have had my knee scoped and that lasted about 1 year. So, my doctor suggested the injections because he did not want to do surgery again that soon.

I completed three injections in my left knee in three weeks time, one injection every week. I have had osteoarthritis since 1994 and the overall left knee pain and the spurs "catching" was common especially in cold weather.

I had arthriscopic surgery 11 weeks ago and was still experiencing pain and having trouble walking. I just had my first injection yesterday and can truly say I have felt relief. Kind of nerveous after reading others reviews about the pain from the second and third injections but if it helps me walk pain free it is well worth it. So far so good

The first series of shots worked and after six months I went back for a second series of shots. The second series of shots were not successful and I am now looking at knee surgery. I have an appointment with a surgeon to check my options.
