    After open knee surgery (many years ago) and scoped surgery I have not had any cartilage on one side for years and have developed Osteoarhtritis. Orthovisc has been amazing and helps after the first injection. It does not quite last 6 months for me though. The last month before I can get more injections is annoying. I have been taking Orthoviisc now for 3 years.

    Too young for knee replacement! So, for that reason I am on my 3rd set of injections, problems with both knees. Very painful when getting the injections and a discomfort for a couple of hours after. But, it is working, pain is a lot less. Very happy with the progress. Don't let the pain of the injection hold you back on finishing the whole treatment.

    I have had two scopes to repair the same torn meniscus and still had chronic knee pain. Doctor recommended these injections. All three were relatively painless. Definite improvement, but not pain free. Bike riding is great, but most impact activities are no good like jogging, climbing, etc. Too young for knee replacement so injections every 6 months fro 10 year and we'll see.
