It appears the Synvisc might work!

A little over 48 hours since I had Synvisc (a lubricant to ease the pain of bone on bone contact in the knee) injected into both of my knees and they are now showing signs of relief. I guess I won’t be able to use them as an excuse to not assist at the wedding my wife is shooting on Saturday. She will be happy about that!

I had good luck with Synvisc before, but I didn’t get anywhere near the 6 months of relief the brochure claimed for the average user (2.5 months was all I got). Based upon that I was planning to hold off on getting the injections until November so that I would be having maximum relief for the hiking I plan to do in Hawaii over Christmas. I hope this series works longer.
