I have osteoarthritis in both knees and was told I'm a good candidate for partial knee replacements for both knees. I tried cortizone shots and that helped for 3 weeks then the pain was back.

I had my first shot of Synvisc One Nov.2014. My whole leg is swollen and the pain is excruciating. I have to sleep on a recliner because if I turn just a little, the pain gets even worse. The company says "only a 2% have side effects" But it is only for immediate reaction like an allergy. I can only walk for a few minutes. It is even worse than before the shot.

On Tuesday I got the shot, by 9 pm on Wednesday my knee was swollen, sore and non weight bearing. Thus I could not walk. A trip to the ER lead to an overnight of iv morp ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have advanced osteoarthritis and the Synvisc injection have worked extremely well for me. I have had the injections done 4 times and each time I get instant pain relief. After an initial stiffness of the joint for a day or so I can resume normal activities. I am grateful that this works so well.
