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.

Thank you. :)

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.
