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?

Comment:
Had 6 injections (3 in each knee) and each one was different. They ranged from hardly feeling it to very painful. However, the end result was fantastic and I highly recommend it. A few weeks after the last injection in each knee, the pain was much much better. One of my knees has a missing ACL and so it would "give out" 3 or 4 times a day. Now it does it about once or twice a week. ... Show Full Comment
