    I have suffered with terrible pain in my knee after a terrible accident. After my doctor determined that I now have arthritis and no other treatment had worked, we decided to try synvisc-one. Within about two days I was completely pain free. I had not been pain free for one day in the last seven years.

    Three days ago, I had the one injection of synvisc-one a month after right knee arthroscopy was performed. The surgery had only marginally improved the knee pain. The shot was not painful and I have not felt any pain at all. I am beginning to experience a broader range of movement in the knee. Will go to the gym in a few days to see what level I can take on now. Has been a positive as of now.

    Had my injection today and did the full dose. I prefer this to three desperate knee injections. In general, I thought my cortisone was much more painful. It takes a good minute to fully depress the plunger and I have very minor tenderness/swelling but nothing near the complaints by other users. I would recommend a lidocaine shot before as it makes it much more manageable. Jury is still out on i ... Show Full Comment

    Have had 3 synvisc-one shots with several cortizone also. The first shot was good for seven months, second - maybe four, then cortizone --no good. Third is the present one.
