Pleased to say I had my knee drained today, it wasn't done by my usual Consultant but by a Registrar. The needle went in and she said to let her know if I needed her to stop. I was waiting for the pain to come when I felt her push the needle a little deeper and felt the discomfort, but thank goodness it was just slightly painful and nowhere near as bad as the last time when I was literally lifting myself up off the bed. She took three and a bit syringes and then injected the steroid. Really pleased how it went and so far just have slight throbbing in my knee. Taking it easy and will rest up tomorrow. Took my Methotrexate tonight so hope my body is starting to get used to it and I will be ok. Hope everyone is doing well. Enjoy the weekend. X
