    I've had OA in both knees since my 40's. Last year had total knee replacement of left knee. A few months afterwards my right knee began hurting much more than my left ever did. Had Cortisone shot and no relief. Doctor suggested Synvisc 1 with 80% chance of success. Had shot on Tue, 3/20 with no adverse effects from shot.

    I have moderate osteoarthritis and history of torn menisci (fibrocartilage) in both knees. Last incident was 11/26/12 and left me unable to walk fast for more than 15-20 minutes.

    I have oa in left knee since 30 years. I've had two arthros on it as well. I don't want knee replacement and had synvisc-one with cortisone instead. I am very happy with results through two days now and it wasn't painful at all. My right knee will be 'scoped' next week and will have same synvisc/cortisone treatment on it once swelling from procedure goes down.

    I have had this shot twice now in both knees. It last about 8 months for me and works extremely well. I am very active and this has allowed me to continue playing soccer without pain and swelling for the past couple of years.

    This injection was very painful. I'll not do it again. It's been two weeks and my knee hurts more when I walk than it did before treatment. I hope it get feeling better soon!
