Has anyone else heard of synvisc for knees, some kind of injection that's supposed to build up the joint? While I can find most anyone who's on some kind of medicine or has had some kind of procedure, this one is new for me. The rheumatologist suggested it on the phone if things get worse, though it may just be another carrot. The knee pain is far outranking the SI pain right now, though putting the gel cushion under my seat helped tonight.
Yes, I've googled, but I find what's in the prescribing info to be one dimensional.
How can girls get better within a set of volleyball games? The difference between the first and third games tonight was surprising.
I ran into a friend there tonight--we used to see each other at least several times a week, and for a while every day, for seven years. We met when our first babies were a few months old. When our youngest kids headed to separate kindergartens a few years ago, we saw each other less and less--now it's been a year and a half. How does time get away from us, how can we miss seeing people we like so much? She saw me first and called to me, didn't blink an eye about the scooter. I said, my back got worse, she said, "I can see that." Nice how we fell right back into our old chattiness right away. Glad I will be seeing her weekly for a while. I needed that. :)
(Synvisc: which part of the bird do they make it from exactly?:
"tell your doctor if you are allergic to products from birds—such as feathers, eggs or poultry.")
