Hi, do any of you more experienced people know if the Rheumy Specialist Nurse can drain fluid from the knee or is it a Consultant's job. I see the nurse on Thursday and am really hoping that she can drain my knee, it is so tight and painful, not a pleasant experience but definitely worth going through a couple of minutes of pain to get the relief. The last time I had it drained the Consultant did it and the relief after a day or so was amazing. I am just hoping that I won't have to wait any longer for it doing. We are a tough bunch aren't we, the things we have to go through.
Hope you are all pain free and doing well.
