Well, I googled the Euflexxa and went into their site. I too am interested in this new drug. My history is 4 knee surgeries on the left knee and 1 on the right knee. My last surgeries were both knees done in Sept/Oct of 04. Left knee was for a partial tear of the ACL and the right was for a torn medical meniscus. I have bad OA in both knees and dr cleaned them up inside as much as he could. After surgery, I underwent Supartz injections in both knees. This was a series of five injections in both knees over a five week period. It was rough, I will not lie.
I am now a candidate for knee replacements both knees. I am in alot of pain still, swelling, limited movement resulting in numerous falls. My ortho understands me putting off the surgery, mainly because I had so many surgeries close together I really needed to give my body a rest. In addition, I have chronic pain and was in so much pain in other areas he did not want to add to the mix at the moment.
I will keep reading up on this. My Supartz injections did not help very much. It will be interesting to see how this drug plays out. Good luck, Susie
