    I am an RN who recently had arthoscopic knee surgery, which left my knee swollen and stiff. Have been using Voltaren noted a vast improvement with no side effects. The gel is easy to use and has helped me rest more comfortably at night. Swelling has also subsided.I do recommend this drug to those who can not tolerate NSAID oral meds.
