  • I had both joints injected on Sept 4 and then again on Nov 5. The first shots gave me 90% relief for about 4 weeks and then dropped off to nothing at 6 weeks. It has been almost a month since the second set of shots and again I got a 90% relief almost immediately and at 50% now. The injections hurt a bit when they go in but an hour later you feel great.
