If the cortisone injection doesn’t work, Dr K said yesterday that the next thing she’d like to try is Synvisc. This is a gel like substance that is made from hyaluronan (a natural substance that already is found in the joints). The synvisc is injected into the knee joint where it acts as a lubricator and shock absorber for the joint. I’d be interested if any of you know anything about this, especially if you, or someone you know has tried this.
A day of meetings today (back to back meetings from 8:30am-3:00pm). No exercise today due to the cortisone injection, but I might go throw some weights around and do a core workout now.
The kids and I are having to fend for ourselves for a couple of nights as Adrienne’s mum was discharged from hospital today and Adrienne went down to take her home and is going to stay with her a couple of nights.
