Comment:
Had Synvisc-One injection in right knee which is end-stage osteoarthritis. Walking is not pain-free, but now possible. Cortisone shots had stopped working, and it was very painful to get out of bed, and walk pretty much any distance. I'm happy to be in less pain, and it has only been two days, so it may get better. If you decide to use Synvisc, be sure to have an ultrasound guided injection. T ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Miracle drug in terms of pain relief for me. I have "not quite" bone-on-bone OA in both knees, and a meniscus tear in the right knee. The only drawback so far is the recovery time (48 hours) from injection pain and flu-like symptoms. Other than that, it has been a Godsend. I have been getting the older Synvisc series of 3 shots, rather than the one-time shot.

Comment:
I used to go in about once a year for an "annual cleaning". Left knee has been bone on bone for about 10 years and the 3rd ACL has been gone for 7 years. About 4 years ago I had a Synvisc One Shot and have not had much knee pain since. Ran 3 half marathons right after the shot and started snowboarding again. I am about ready for another shot. No side effects other than a little stiffness ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had been receiving Hyalgan (1 shot in each knee for 5 weeks) and having great success. Synvisc One was recommended to me by a friend so I tried it. EXTREMELY painful injections. Hobbled out of the office after waiting 15 minutes before I could stand. Still can't fully bend my knees due to continued swelling and pain... and it's now 2 weeks later. NEVER again! I'm going back to Hy ... Show Full Comment
