54 yr old and was told that I needed a knee replacement 4 yrs ago, synvisc has saved me the trouble and pain of knee replacement and I can still do my job as a plumbing contractor. With knee replacement my job would have been in jepardy. I usually get the 3injections approximately every yr and they are somewhat painful but work.

I am a 51 year old male law enforcement officer that has suffered with knee pain for years and this treatment has been very effective for me. This is the fifth time I've had the treatment and I'm very pleased.

54 yr old f. Have had knee problem since grade school. Had 3 ops. About 4 yrs ago, I had Synvisc inj for 1st time. Everything was fine. Last year, 2nd time injections were uncomfortable, but tolerable & knee pain was gone. I was able to walk around Europe for 2 weeks. Just had Synvisc inj for the 3rd time this month. Horrible pain during shots, swelling, unable to straighten knees or walk for 3 days after 1st two shots. During 3rd shot, I begged dr. to stop & was crying it was so painful. That was 5 days ago-my knees are twice as painful as before the shots & I have trouble doing everything. My dr. says I cannot have them anymore, he thinks the Synvisc has irritated the joint. This was my last hope for pain relief. I have been to 4 drs & they don't want to do a replacement until I reach 60! I'll be in a wheelchair before that!

I got my first series of 3 shots in February,08.I felt the benefit after about 4 weeks and this allowed me to return to my normal activities. The pain returned in November 08 and just had my second series of 3 shots . This time the releif was almost immediate. Taking shots was not a problem at all.

painfree injection and normally lasts 3to4 months

Comment from: 35-44 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: April 01

My lateral leg felt like acid was eating my nerves and flesh. I've had rapid muscle atrophy following the shots as well. If you start to feel pain from this, consider the fact that you may be allergic. My doctor dismissed my reaction and it cost me. My knee joint feels good, but it wasn't worth a month of intense agony.

Comment from: Toadress, 55-64 on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: April 07

Other than having 5 weeks of injections, it was a good experience twice. Within 2 months, I was pain free.... then I tried to do what I used to do (kneel to do exercises) and had a flare up. So I have just completed a second set of shots. So far, everything is going well.
