Aw! am sad yours didn't last long, knees are usually very successful for me. I probably do have a bit of pain but the movement is so much better and all the swelling goes.

I can only repeat what my RA specialist said and that was I could have 2 a year in any joint and when they did not work anymore for me it would be new joints.
Maybe it is time for you to take that step!
We are all different and We can only take their advice.
I do hope they can help you.
