Gel One injections

Hi,

Has anyone had Gel One injections for knee osteoarthritis? I had mine in 4/19 one in each knee. Please let me know your experience. My knees are worse since these shots.

    I had a steroid injection in my knee a few years ago, it helped for a bit.  I mainly use a tens unit for pain, deep heat and arnica massage oil.

    Hi

    I've hada steroid injection in both knees about about 2 weeks ago.

    Since having it one knee has got much worse.  The only thing I can put it down to is that  they were drained and the the one that is is is so sore is one that an awful lot came out of it.  Is it possible that the fluid was cushioning some damage and now it has all been drained out there is nothing to cushion the damage any more

      Hello,

      The Gel One is supposed to cushion your knees it should last for about 6 months. Mine got worse after the injections. This is awful. I understand if gel shots don't work for everyone but I never thought they would make your knees feel worse.
