I have been housebound for 2 months now. I had my 3rd knee injection a week ago and I suffer pain and stiffness 24/7. My swelling on both knees (both sides of each knee) is about the size of a peach.

Let me give you the key to helping Orthovisc work. Had 1 shot=no change 2nd shot=about 3 days after BOOM NO PAIN!!!!

I received a series of injections of orthovisc in hopes that my knee pain would diminish. Well, about a week after I received my last injection, my knee filled up the size of a peach. Talk about pain and discomfort! My doctor drained 4 viles of fluid from my knee. I'm not sure why I didn't great results as some others have, but I sure wish I would have!

Comment:
66 year old male. Osteoarthritis. Had torn meniscus and knee scope surgery. Had the last of 4 injections of orthovisc. Knee pain is awful. No relief. This drug is very expensive.. $250 per injection for the orthovisc plus $200 for the doctor to do the injection. Doctor won't give me any pain meds because the DEA does not allow it. My primary care will not allow me to take anymore Tylenol bec ... Show Full Comment
