Title: 1st synvisc injection tomorrow
Post by: missmyknee on August 06, 2003, 04:08:46 AM
 Tomorrow I start my synvisc injections. I'll have 1 injection per week for 3 weeks. If this doesn't help then it's probably more surgery. I hope I'm a member of the It Didn't Hurt Too Much Club!

Had my injection this am and hardly felt a thing.  This was do to the fact that the Doc gave injection on the lateral side of patella and I am already numb from all the surgery i've had. This is one instance where the numbness was wanted.

It will probably be a while before you notice benefit--I'm praying you get wonderful results from these!

Hi Sylvia

Thank you for your well wishes. I'm not too sure this will help. I think my problem is more a need to have my osteotomy redone or raised up but I'll give it a try.
