Hi all., Still in heaps of pain & looking at options. I went for my 2nd opinion today from another orthopaedic surgeon. I think he gathered pretty quickly that I do not wish to rush intom a TKR unless it is the last option. He has suggested a Synvisc one injection which can last for many patinets up to 6 months or even longer. He said 1/3 patience get great results. 1/3 get partial relief of pain & 1/3 get almost no relief. It only costs about $400 or less out of pocket compared to $6000 for stem cell therapy so I think it may be worth a try. MY 1st orthopaedic surgeon who did my arthroscopy has never mentioned this. Has anyone has this done & did it hel[ ?
