    I have osteoarthritis of the knees. A month ago I had the Syn-Visc one injections and now I am in more pain than I ever had before. It is very difficult to walk after getting up from my bed and chair. The pain is intolerable.

    In April of 2004 an MRI showed advanced tricompartmental degenerative joint disease and in May of 2004 I had a course of 3 injections, had no side effects, and was pain free until the first part of 2008. In June of '08 I had 3 injections of Euflexxa and am again pain free (with no side effrcts). I am very satisfied with this treatment.

Meds did nothing to stop the pain and was told by several doctors that the injections would not work because I am overweight.Yet one Dr told me it would and i tried it, and the same day most of the pain went away, and I was able to walk with out the pain I was in before.At the end of third injection no pa ...
