    Synvisc One for the knee

    I had a SynviscOne shot in each of my knees 2.5 weeks ago. It helped for my right knee but not much for my left. Is 2.5 weeks too soon to tell? I'm ready to say yes to a knee replacement, this hurts so much.

    My wife had SynviscOne in both knees on May 28th. After about two days her knees felt much better and they are still feeling much better. But, we are retired and she doesn't work so she can pamper her knees with rest and frequent icing. Also, she hopes to get cortisone knee shots in November prior to a trip, and then hopes to get SynviscOne again every six months.

    Sorry about your knee pain. I wish that you had better results in both knees!

    Retired here also. Pain is a little less but not back to normal. Will the Dr's let you get SynviscOne every 6 months? Heck, sounds like a plan for me.

    Re: Synvisc One for the knee

    Medicare covers SynviscOne every six months. In between the six month injections, my wife's medical professionals suggest having cortisone shots in her knees as the SynviscOne becomes less effective.

    From our research we feel that the SynviscOne injections have to be extremely precise in where they are injected or they can actually cause more pain and not be effective. We get this opinion from reading the many feedbacks about Synvisc and Euflexxa failures.

    My wife's right knee is worse than her left knee, but the SynviscOne helps both knees. In between the SynviscOne injections, the cortisone shots help quite a bit!

    Regards, Bob

    This is great news! I'll be on Medicare in about 10 months. Thank you for this info. Very much appreciated.
