I am very happy with the results. The MD told me that it was going to take about a month to feel the complete results. He was right, one month later I am pain free. I am also doing exercises at home to rehab which I could not do prior to the medication.

Reading some of the other reviews it seems that I am taking a different drug. I have now begun my 3rd year with Synvisc. I agree that the injections are a little uncomfortable but they have never been painful and I've now had 8 of them.

But I kept telling myself, you've gone from no cartilage to what amounted to full cartila ... Show Full Comment

A little knee swelling and minimal pain at the injection site for 24 hours, but that's it. I know I'm not expecting any help for 3-4 weeks, but it seems to have minimally helped after a few days. If it has only a slight positive impact, well worth it. Make sure the ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Four knee surgeries and one high tibial osteotomy for an active 44 year old with osteoarthrits. Tried Synvisc-One on recommendation for the knee without the HTO. The injection with a 14 gage needle was extremely uncomfortable but quick (about a minute); doc didn't prep the knee with any pain relief beforehand which might have helped. After a 20 minute wait and some ice I was able to walk fr ... Show Full Comment
