    I have had the shots 4 times over 3 years in the right knee, after 2 arthrascopic surgeries. I only just had the 1 set of shots in the left knee and am not feeling much comfort even after 2 months. I am resorting to wearing a brace more & more, plus use of a cane on the bad days.

    I shouldn't rate any stars as I just had my first injection yesterday - and looked on this site to see if anyone had an adverse reaction like I did. I had surgery a year ago on my left knee and am still having pain. During the injection, I had immense pain in the back on my knee (not injection site) and the nerve pain ran up my leg into my back and down my leg into my foot. I immediately go ...

I am in the process of losing my last 50# and this makes my exercise tolerable. I also work and now I can stand being on my feet for longer periods of time. It doesn't take away all my pain and stiffness but It does take it to the level that allows me to mos ... Show Full Comment

    I just finished my third injection yesterday. So far nothing has happened. If anything, my knees are slightly worse. They told me it may take all three injections and then it still might be a few weeks after the third injection for full relief. So far the only thing that has happened is that they get really stiff and painful for a day or two after the injections. When the stiffness wears off I am ... Show Full Comment

    I have had surgery and gone to therapy to try to solve my knee pain. Nothing seemed to work until this. The first 2 shots were painful and hurt for a day or two. The third, barely felt anything. Although standing for more than 2 hours may cause a little discomfort for the first 2 or 3 days. It is amazing.
