Today I had the first set of Synvisc injections for my arthritic knees. Synvisc is a lubricating substance that provided some relief to me for this condition that lasted from late March through May. The injections are given at 2 week intervals in each knee. I feel very sore for about a day after the injection and am not supposed to lift anything heavy for 48 hours after them. If all goes well, I may still have relief when I go to Hawaii over the Christmas break.
