    After a couple of weeks with no improvement, I was becoming very disappointed. Then, all of a sudden, it "kicked in" and I have been pain free for a year and a half. Great stuff. Ready to use it in my other knee!

    I am scheduled from my series of shots for the 3rd time (over a period of 1 1/2 years). These shots have given me my life back.

    I was so sad that I did not get the effect I was hoping for. All I really wanted was to be able to do a few months before. I wanted to walk on my favourite path. It has not help but I was told by the doctor that not everyone was helped so I was simply disappointed. Thanks anyway, although it was not a pleasant experience (getting the shots), I wish it had worked! Micheline Chaudry

    After meniscus repair surgery did not work, my doctor recommended this product. The injections were not painful, but they did not work for me. Think long and hard before spending the time and money on this drug. Another surgery is in my future.
