I had the injection 4 days ago and the usual knee pain persists !
Synvisc is usually given in a series of 3 injections. You should avoid any type of heavy or intense exercise for at least 48 hours after each injection. You can apply ice to your knee to help with any residual pain and swelling. While a few people have experienced marked pain reduction after just one injection, it generally takes all three injections to get significant results. Synvisc is a thick, almost gel-like substance. That's why you get it in a series instead of one injection. After each injection, the natural movement of your knee will help move and disburse the fluid to where it's needed. Three injections will allow the fluid to build up and provide an even thicker cushion in your joint. So try and be patient. You'll should feel less pain after the next injection and, hopefully, significant pain relief after the last one. I do hope this helps!
I had the same injection 6 days ago and I'm in severe pain. So I wondered the same question. I thought this was a wonder drug, the answer to me walking again without pain, but instead, I'm worse off than before. Good luck to you, and I wish I knew how things worked out for you.
I had my first shot of Synvisc I in my left knee Jan. 29, 2015... today is Sunday that will make it last Thursday... I picked up some Tumeric One Daily Capsules by Solaray (for inflamation) and I didn't have the pain and swelling my doctor warned me about. Cut your salt intake. I also heard that Ginger is good for inflamation... make a ginger tea or add the ginger to your favorite tea. I think if you get your inflamation down you should feel better. If you are carrying extra weight that is also a factor on your knees... make adjustments where necessary.
I had the Synvisc put into my shoulder. I was wondering do you think it will have the same effects as the knee has? I had the injection 3 days ago and I am still having pain. They doctor told me it would take about 3 weeks to work, but this by far was the worst injection I have ever had!!!
I opted to have all 3 injections at once because my doc would not be available for the recommended 1 week interval. i have massaged my knee regularly as recommended by my doc. One week later i am still experiencing pain in the back of my knee. this pain get more sever as I walk. rest seems to help but when I start walking again the pain starts again. I have no excessive swelling , I have been applying ice and taking anti inflammatory drugs that were prescribed by doc. Is it normal for the pain to last this long? I have an anthritic knee that is why I needed the injections. Prior to the injections I had pain but not as severe as the present pain.
