Medial meniscus removed in '78. Spiral fracture involving knee in '98. Knee replacement is inevitable. Had never heard of Synvisc. Went to ortho to discuss knee replacement and he suggested it.

BEWARE!!! I had the Synvisc 1 injection because of pain from a microfracture and I immediately could not bend my leg after the injection. Very painful.

I have just received my third Synvisc One Each injection has provided me with 6 months of relief. I am a CNA and on my feet 8+ hrs. a day. These injections are the only thing that has worked for me. There is some stiffness for about 48hrs after and I start to feel maximum relief about 3 weeks after. Would not go without them!

I have a torn right knee meniscus tear and OA of both knees. The pain was very bad and my MD suggested the SynviscOne injection. For three days after taking injection I was in such extreme pain that I had to stay in bed taking narcotics. My knees were swollen and felt "full". The day after the injection I had chills and pain all over my body. Had to be out a week from work. Its bee ... Show Full Comment
