I was given a Synvisc injection in August of 2010 and had immediate great results. I was given a second injection in December 2011 and had VERY painful red, swollen knee results that required draining of my knee. It was drained twice -- 50-70 cc each time. Would I react any differently to Orthovisc? An interesting note: this happened to my sister as well -- same scenario. Allergy?
