I have sevre OA in the right(bone on bone) and moderate in the left. I had cortisone shots 2 weeks ago and it was great for the first week and a half....now the pain is starting again. Doctor says next step are these Hyaluronic Shots, 5 shots over the course of 5 weeks. Says these can help for months at a time and can postpone the surgery.
This has the potential for financial hardship as each office visit costs money out of pocket. I'm not sure that it is worth the money. I'm looking for anyone who has had these shots and what their experience might have been. Also wondering if I can get any relief with less than 5 of them. Just looking for expierence in this. Surgeon says that TKR is needed for the right knee and that seems very overwhelming at this time in my life.
