Hi all, After 15 months of dealing with the pain of a severly damaged hip from osteoarthritis, I am finally going to go ahead with the replacement. My aprehension is that I also have a severly damaged arthritic knee both on the right side. I just received the synvisc one injection in my knee one week ago. We hope that it will work and my knee will hold up for the post op hip replacement therapy.I also do not have anyone that will be with me post op except a few friends and co-workers who will get me to appointments and such. Any and all experience that you may be willing to share with me would be greatly appreciated.
