    Took my 2d in the series today. Both times little to no pain when Dr injected me, however I went right back to work the same day after the 1st and paid for it the next two days, it was the 4th day after 1st treatment that I could actually walk without bone to bone pain.

    Shots in both knees. One knee was very painful on 1st shot and much worse on 2nd. Don't think there will be a third. Knees aren't that much better.
