I have moderate to severe osteoarthritis in left knee. It had gotten so stiff and painful I could not bear to bend it to walk and had to cut out walking for exercise and spend a lot of time icing and heating my knee---prescription meds were not working.

I have had three injections. I got intial relief followed by intense joint pain far worse than what I sought treatment for.

The last several days have been bloody hell.

The Dr I see for my OA and torn meniscus recommended Orthovisc injections 4 months ago. Why did I wait? I am now working in the garden, walking, exercising and in general feel so much better. The only negative is now I notice all the other little aches and pains that were so minor before that I didn't know they were there.
