My knee issue

I've been dealing with this on and off for years. It's totally impacted my home life, work and my own health.
One of my biggest problem is putting everyone and everything first over my own health.

Now my knees have progessively gotten worse over the years to the points I mentioned above.
I've tried adequate and aflutop, which did work but my knees weren't quite as bad as they've become.

So now I'm trying something new as a last ditch effort before I give in to total knee replacement.

EUFLEXXA, while it is hyaluronic acid, it's different that most other HA's.
Tuesday was the first of 3 injections. One next week and one in the following week.

My insurance denied it. So this is out of pocket for now.
We're fighting their ruling. They wanted me to take steroids and cortizone shots.. which I aleady been through and they didn't work.. so they must have overlooked that in my med records.
They also mentioned draining my knee.. that right there tells me they don't know shit.. I have bone on bone contact in my knees.. I'll be damned if anyone is going to drain what's left of the little fluid that's in there.. dumb asses

Now I've been told both by my new doc who I really like and others that have had this done.. that it can take better than a week before reaping any rewards.

But I have to say.. I feel the difference today. Big time. First day I slept pretty well and woke up with very little pain.. and that was only after I got out of bed. While in bed, painless.

So to say I'm elated is putting it mildly.

Next Tuesday is my second shot and I'm actually looking forward to it.

I can't wait to get back to the old me!!!

Best of luck and keep us posted on how you feel the results go... My insurance company will pay for all the cortisone I want but won't pay for any of the HAcid alternatives... Evil ....s

I have small remedy that might work for you. Wrap a cloth dumped with hot water around your knee. This might work. You have to believe me my old granny used this technique. She is going for a walk after two months. But you have to do it every evening and in some cases for every one hour.

I think my mom did this or something similar in 2000. I think she said she had 5 injections altogether. It was suppose to be a "few year" fix to get her through until she had knee replacement. 18 years later she's never had the knee replacement.

That's good news. Put off that replacement as long as possible. They don't last that long and they need redone. Main reason they want you old before they do it.
