    Had my right knee injected last Thursday at 10:00 am. The injection was only slightly uncomfortable. No pain whatsoever after shot was done. Felt relief by Thursday night. I didn't know what it felt like to not have knee pain! Called Dr. today to order Synvisc-1 for my left knee. Even if it lasts only a few months it's worth it in my opinion. Of course I hope it lasts longer so time ... Show Full Comment

Hurt like H.. when got shot, no nu ... Show Full Comment

Dr. used freeze spray and anesthetic prior to shot and no pain ... Show Full Comment
