Hi; We have talked about knee replacement, but I am supposed to start shots of Orthovisc because the doctor does not want to take a chance on me having a Avian source injection from birds or chickens. I know some are made up from the comb of the rooster. The Orthovisc is derived from bacterial cells, and that makes me question that as well as a Avian source injection.
Has anyone had Synvisc or Orthovisc shots? I cannot seem to find information on it causing interference with Leukemia or TKI treatment.
I have about had it with all these things popping up constantly, and just do not want any more problems.
