After 1st shot I had what felt like a walnut behind my kneecap. VERY PAINFUL Didn't want other 2 shots. Dr. said I would owe him $500 because Medicare only paid for full 3 shots. I relented, and after 2nd shot was on crutches. Pressure on knee was excrutiating. Third shot din't help and now use cane and legs swollen, had blood clot and leg muscles tight as a drum.
