After getting the injections in late August 2017, I discovered that the normal administration is one injection per knee over 3 separate visits. I had all three injections per knee in one visit. I am starting to feel pain again after only 2 months and am wondering if this could be the reason.
I've never heard of anyone receiving all 3 injections during one visit. I'm sorry, that must have been much more painful for you than was necessary. The injections are normally spread out over 3 visits because the fluid is so thick and the time span is to allow it opportunity to spread throughout your joint, building layer, by layer, by layer. I suppose it's possible that your fluid didn't spread and cover as completely since it was all pushed in at once. However, my Dr was very candid with me and told me this treatment worked well for some, but not for all. I think it depends on the type, and severity, of your damage. It may be worth having another series of injections done. I'd insist though that they were given in the regular series of one a week as opposed to all at once. You might check with your insurance company first though. Mine would only approve them being given every 6 months, but that was quite a while ago, so that may have changed.
