Been wondering the same wabi. My knee doctor never mentions it but after two shots of cortizone to my left knee I think it's time to talk.

Did not work for me - or anyone I know. I think it just another insurance ploy to milk more money before they approve a replacement. YMMV.

Had one in my right knee in September.It works if applied correctly.I used it for three years before I had my left knee replaced.They have to shoot it in several different areas in your knee to work correctly.It stopped pain for me from 6 months to almost a year.What it does is act as a lubricant between the bones in your knee.

Mother in Law did it and it did not work for her but she was several years past needing to have knee replacement anyway before she tried it.

I got a consol the 31st at Nashvegas VA.
Left knee been fugged since early may.
Lower leg went one way , rest of leg above knee joint went 90° the other way.
It was exquisite.......

Xrays MRI
Torn partialy healed ACL
Cartiledge peices floating all the fugg around in the joint.
Bakers cyst from it all when it 1st happened from massive fluid bulid up from intial injury.

Hopefully they can unfugg it all with as little impact as possible

Had a right knee surgery in 94 on AD.
Vacumn out chunks of cartilage and grind bone channels to allow new cartilage to form.
Recovered from that very well.

Knee surgeries and or procedures have more than likely advanced since 94 I would imagine....

I just hope if surgery is needed .
It dont fugg up turkey hunting april thru may alot.
Might not do alot of running and gunning covering ground .
Go into field bird and deke mode.
Bout a 50/ 50 mix of both now...


Is what it is....🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Or the synthetic versions - Euflexxa, Synvisc, etc.

When the knee is shot, R&R.

Alot of this goes on..


Then your ancient
On 14 day protocol on life support.
Do a "test " pull on the vent at day 10.
X amount of time for your vitals to hit low double and single digits.
Then the nurse comes in under the pretext of comfort care all explained to relatives before in person and a " nice" little booklet so you dont see possible death throes is how it is all presented.
She puts a 50cc shot of comfort care morphine in the IV line and within in 2 mins or less it is done.

The medicaid or medicare system money making protocols for treatments and procedures have reached the end of the list.
Time for you to go and free up a bed for the next cash cow stepping off the money making stage.

The nurse of death has the "comfort care" coup de grace shot.
A family member tells her the vitals have reached a level to come and get her at the station while she is killing time on her smart phone while family spends that vitals are going downward time with their relative.

It all seems pretty planned and morbid, set up to milk benjamins as long as possible.


BTDT seen it.

Of course YMMV based on perception......

They need to invent a 3D printer that can use your own DNA and just make you a new cartilage.

I know a lady that has received numerous shots of cock.
It was very effective for awhile, but eventually lost effectiveness.
Probably got started too late. We all do it. Wait untill you can't stand
the pain. By then, it's too late to fix.


Achilles tendonitis, is my example.
Ignored both being frayed so long that they healed.
With big knots of scar tissue. So even healed, it's not good.
Surgery is the answer. No F'n way! Live with it.

My dad did it. It works for a while before you have it replaced.

I did Euflexxa first (three injections a week apart) then my insurance changed it to Mono Visc. ( one injection) They are all about the same. I have been doing them every 6 months for two years. The last one I had both knees done.

My Ortho doc says with some people they don't see much change. My initial injection took about two weeks to see any difference. I feel about a 75% reduction in pain in walking and general usage, but not in any twisting or carrying something heavy.That still hurts like heck. I still don' t walk very far. Maybe 300 yards.

When low pressure system or bad weather moves in, nothing much helps and they ache.

I also use a topical cream, Sombra ( Amazon). It comes in a cool and warm therapy gel. I also use a CBD cream called Ugly Butter that I get from a Big R farm store. It also has a day and night version. Both day versions have Capsacin in them which to me works as a stimulant. I can't use that.

I highly recommend the injections if you have bone on bone. At least give it a try.

Tried it years ago, before my knee was replaced. Gave me an arthritis flare. You really do not know knee pain until that happens. Doc said, yeah, that happens some times.


Some mornings, it just does not feel worth it to chew through the straps!~

An acquaintance used to get gold shots in his knees & they helped to point. This was about 30 years ago, haven't heard of them recently.


Otherwise, will the family Dr. need to set up a person with a specialist to get shots started? I've had about enough, just waiting for next scheduled visit to inquire.

The way mine works,I have to see an Orthopedic Specialist. You want them to do injection so they put in in the right place.

I have a Humana Medicare Advantage insurance.

The specialist takes x-rays and diagnose the problem.

The doctor's office sends in a request for approval to the insurance. When they get that, the doctor's office calls a specialty pharmacy to order the prescription.The Specialty Pharmacy calls me for a co-payment for which I give them a credit card number. Mine is $340 for both knees.The pharmacy calls me when they ship the prescription to the doctors' off and they call me to set up an appointment once they get it.

With mine,the drug cost does not count towards the total pharmacy medication for the year. Which is good because then I don't hit the Medicare doughnut gap.

I’ve rehabilitated a lot of people after knee replacement. I like to ask what they did leading up to surgery. Not everyone tries those injections or has them suggested. It appears to be more of an option than a mandatory conservative step before replacement surgery.

I’ve had people tell me that they had no benefit, a few days, a few weeks or months. I think the goal is six months. Some made it there and a few upwards of a year. It buys some time and that’s about all it’s meant to do. Experience varies and seems to reach a point where the benefit diminishes with subsequent injections. Again, it seems that the experience is very different and individual.
