General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Euflexxa - My Experience - So Far So Good
Received my first injection on 3/13/15 and it was virtually painless. I asked for the numbing spray. You have to remember to relax and not tense up. This really helps. I went home and stayed off of it for the remainder of the day (24 hours) and iced it several times. No problems and actually felt a little relieve in my knee. It wasn't pain free but it was a bit better. I had my 2nd injection today and again asked for the numbing spray but I don't believe the doctor allowed it to work quite as long as the first time, so it did hurt a little bit (enough to make me tense up a bit). What I mean by hurt is not even like a bee sting! I came home and have elevated my knee, have gone to the RR and have been icing here and there. Again, no pain nor swelling. I don't find the shots terribly painful or even really painful at all. I would prefer not to have them but it certainly beats the alternative (TKR). I was told today to allow at least 6 weeks from the 1st injection to feel results. People who experience results/relief from the 1st injection are on average of about 5%. I'm glad I can say I am one of the 5%. It wasn't a lot but it sure was noticeable and some relief. I go for my 3rd of 3 total injections next Friday 3/27/15. Hope this helps me. I simply want to be able to walk again without all of the pain. Note: I am also using a knee brace to help move/lift the little bit of bone to bone on inner left knee area to the outter area. This also helps. I will be wearing it too in conjunction with the Euflexxa injections. Wishing everyone the very best! OA is no fun for sure. I am also a 51 (almost 52 year old female) if this helps.

Euflexxa
I have OA degeneration in both knees. The first time I used Eufexxa, I had been hobbling in great pain. The injections left me pain free. I waited too long to go through the series again. ( one year). I am scheduled for a 6 mt interval, now. Sometimes the relief is immediate; other times a couple weeks until I am completely pain free. No side effects.

Keep it elevated with the ice packs on it. Stay off of it for the first 24-48 hours. Go to the RR and all but do not walk around all over etc...Really take it easy. I use the ice more than 3x on the day of the injection and the day directly after. Hope this helps. Wishing you well.
