Discussion: The knee.....still and again

Hey Mel;

When I need it, my ortho does drain the fluid - and it definitely helps. If you find a good one, they appreciate that we want to extend our careers and will do everything possible to make it happen.

Discussion: The knee.....still and again

Hey Mel;

My Doc suggests that I give it at least a few days after an injection - and I occasionally listen>:) I watch to see the reaction and judge it from there. There is some swelling whenever you get these, but in a lot of cases rapid relief. I had my first of three on Tuesday and played last night with no discomfort and no swelling today.

I use a ton of ice - 20 minutes on and 20 off. If you don't mind the dorky look, try an ice pack stuffed into a velcro knee brace. It keeps the ice in place and allows me to be mobile.

I talked to my Doc about the effectiveness of this class of drugs - no surprise that the reason the insurance companies will pay for them is that there is scientific data indicating that 70% of the patients get some benefit which saves expensive knee replacements.

I am one of the happy users and wish you the best of luck.

Hey Mel;


I am a grateful for the injections - I have had my ACL replaced and then tore the miniscus on the same knee. I have had the injections six times and will get them again. My doc said it takes a few weeks for the benefit to completely take effect - I started on Synvisc and when that stopped being effective, switched to Euflexxa.

Good Luck and keep swinging!

Discussion: SYNVISC KNEE INJECTIONS

I am a Synvisc fan - I have had my ACL replaced and then tore the miniscus on the same knee. I have had the injections three times and will get them again. My doc said it takes a few weeks for the benefit to completely take effect - and one of the three times I had some slight swelling that took a few weeks to subside.

Good Luck and keep swinging!
