Had the synvisc one shots in both knees 9 days ago. Have been in severe pain since. Can hardly stand or walk. I wasn't nearly that bad before.Was doing aqua classes before. Cortizone worked for me but Dr. suggested change. Worse thing I could have done. Am wondering how long this will last or if there is something else I can do?

Comment:
After my Surgeon recommended a 3rd surgery (re-alignment of patellar tendon/replace kneecap), I asked about Synvisc, and he said it was worth a shot. My insurance easily approved the cost and I was in my doc's office within 2 weeks of asking for the injection. The injection was only a bit painful, and lots of pressure. I had 6cc of cortizone mixed with novicane, followed by the 6cc of synvi ... Show Full Comment
