    Had an allergic reaction following second injections (hives, tingling lips, swollen, red hands) and was told I can never have Synvisc again. The second set of shots was significantly more painful than the first. Too soon to know if I'll get pain relief from the abbreviated treatment.

    This is my second time in 6 months having Synvisc. My first series there was not as much pain during injections. This time I am finding the shots very sore. Same Doctor. I am having a much longer time feeling better after each shot. I find that the difference may be that last time I had an athrosope done before to clean it all out. This one has been very painful. I do find the outcome worth ... Show Full Comment

    I have OA in both knees, left knee had 3 scops, cortisone shots and synvisc which did not help me at all, end result was total knee replacement in that knee. The synvisc injections were mildly uncomfortable, but tollerable. The drug just did not offer the relief that I was hoping for. I suffered no complications from the injections.

Still experience sharp pain with certain knee movements and even when in bed. The injections are almost painless for me. Synvisc seems to alleviate pain for a short time, but did not cure the cause of my pai ... Show Full Comment
