I am a 41 year-old woman with arthritis in my knee similar to that of a 60 to 70 year-old woman. I just had my second shot of the five shot/five week series of Synvisc.

Comment:
Had first injection of Synvisc One in July of 2010. Injection was easy, relatively pain free, and quick.

I've had a second injection today, 7/27/2011 again with no pain during the procedure and am looking forward to another year of incredible pain reduction. Previously had used cortisone ...
