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.

I read the reviews two nights ago after I had received Synvisc One in my left knee. I have no cartilage left and have exhausted all other options. The reviews made me nervous.

If it has only a slight positive impact, well worth it. Make sure the ... Show Full 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

Received injection Wed 3/9/11; 5 days ago. Injection was uncomfortable and knee had alot of swelling. Knee felt very unstable the first couple of days. Swelling has gone down but not completely; knee beginning to get some strength back. After only 5 days unable to know if this injection will benefit my knee.
