... any additional injections because my knee is more swollen and painful than before. Has anyone else experienced this same issue? Thanks
Jacd; a bit of info on this medication in case you did not see it. (( Hymovis is similar to the fluid that surrounds the joints in your body. This fluid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the joints.
Hymovis is used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.
Hymovis is usually given after other arthritis medications have been tried without success.
Hymovis may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. OK, THIS WAS PROVIDED BY THIS SITE AND THERE ARE OTHER injections BUT MANY OF THOSE WORK A LOT LIKE THIS BUT THE SHOTS ARE LIKE MONTHLY AND IT CAN TAKE A FEW MONTHS BEFORE YOU START TO GET RELIEF. The main thing is many of the things you are saying are all listed here so you should keep an open talk with the doctor. Did you already say you did not use the 2nd shot? with the doctor. But because this one is giving you problems ask the doctor about the others that are monthly shots and don't give up. As you know this shot replaces the liquid in the joints so please for your sake don't give up. I am so sorry but I can't remember the name of the few that you get the shot on monthly basis. And I have heard lots of good things. The hard part just as it says above that this shot here is when other options are exhausted. But after a while, they should kick in and as it says no extra pressure on it for a week or so as jogging, Standing more than an hour. But I feel see how long this knee stays this way and keep good records of any of these that you use how long it worked or did not work. There is a lot of help and hope out there and could be one of the others well working. which I have seen with others so good to talk with the doctor but for now. Keep on eye on this knee for a sore or turning red hot anything that would make it look like an infection and let your doctor know right away. You will find something try not to worry. and hope you have a nice Christmas. Chuck1957
