Inflammatory response after Synvisc one injection

For osteoarthritis of it knee, had synched one injected a week ago. Developed severe swelling, pain, unable to bear weight on leg. Had 70cc of fluid aspirated from knee and steroid injections placed. The swelling is better however the pain and bearing weight isn't. Doctor gave me a brace and ordered PT. is there anything else that can be done?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You can have warm compression. Only thing left is total knee transplant.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
