Hello, I was injected in my left knee in march of this yr with the same drug that was recalled because of the meningitis outbreak. I was also injected in my back in july of this yr with the tainted drug but am not showing any signs of any illness.What i would like to know is that the gov is saying that anybody that received the shot after may 16th should beware. When i received my steroid shot in my knee in march,5 days later my knee swelled up so much that in 2 visits to my doctors he removed 240 cc of yellow fluid,it was tested and there was no infection,but an inflammatory problem . I have since received a total knee replacement. What i am asking is there any way that the bottle of steroid used in march,could also be a bad bottle also. Any feedback from you,might help me get a better nights sleep,considering the circumstances. Thank You.....View Thread
