    This is the 10th set of injections I have had. I am thrilled that for nearly the entire six months between treatments I am pretty much pain free. Both knees are bone on bone and the osteoarthritis is nearly unbearable without them. I follow the instructions to not do any heavy activity for the first 48 hrs following each injection and have not had a problem.

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. My first set of ... Show Full Comment
