Jim, this brings up an interesting question I have been asking my brother in law for years to see how the answer might change. He played football at the H.S. level until he damaged his knees. Every 5 years or so (giving him time to both age and forget that I ask the same question every 5 years) , I ask him if he could do it over, would he forego his football "career".

What would you have said at 25, 30 and today?

OTOH, I tried the very same experiment, and the only result was a lighter wallet. I also read a study recently, which concluded that Chondroitin had no impact on knee pain. In any case, it's worth a try -- might help, might not.

I think you both need Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Ask for it by name. Nothing else compares.

Sometimes I feel like I want to massacre my wounded knee.

I should mention that as a kid I played alot of street football with no pads and spent 2 months of every summer kneeling in an aluminum canoe. I subsequently developed Osgood-Schlotters disease in which my knees hurt if you just looked at them. This went away with time. I tried several brands of arthritis meds as well as Tylenol, Motrin etc. and nothing helps. I need to set up an appointment to find out what's going on and maybe suggest a Vicodin drip. I would not be the slightest bit embarrassed to walk around with that drip bag.
So last Monday, I received my very first cortisone injection in my knee.

Negatives:
Kept me awake for 48 hours -- even fought off a halcion. Might be a plus for you depending on circumstances.
Took about three days to work as intended


Positives:
Fast, relatively painless procedure
Knee pain reduced by at least 80%
No long-term health risks associated with other types of cortisone treatments


All in all, I'd say go for it if your knee is troublesome enough.

I would not change much. If given the chance to change things in my past, a sore knee is not at the top of the list...yet. A few Advil a couple of times a year at the most is hardly reason to regret. We will see though. It could get worse.

Is it a stimulent? How long is the relief supposed to last?
