Hi to all knee suffers who are either wating for TNR or are still sitting on the fence - I was just about to start my next series of Synvisc injections that now come as a series of 3 to be told by BUPA that they are no longer covering this form of treatment - so being faced with either TNR or further Synvisc injections have decided to pay the £1500 myself. This treatmnt wroks for me having had these before some 7 months ago - so have had the 1st last thursday - 2nd tomorrow 26th Feb and the last on 6th March  obviously very miffed about  BUPA tefusing to pay for any further treatment but I suppose they have to make a profit somewhere along the line !!?? will post results which should kick in after the 3rd injection - in the meantime have decided to use a pair of arm crutch walikgn supports which aliviate the pain somewhatwhen walking,  found them on ebay of all places !!   £12 the pair  new and full adjustable  recommmended kind regards to all Jude

    For those that get relief they are great and probably should be the 1st line of treatment. In my case they wouldn't even discuss it with me any more than to say it would be a loss of time, Money and effort. I was too far gone there was nothing for the drug to work on. Every one, every case different. Hope you continue to get the relief you desire

    I wanted to try those injections before my knee surgery but my insurance stopped paying for them.  They did, however, pay for the surgery.  Strange what they decide to do and not to do.  Good luck with the injections - sure hope they help!
