Hi, I know I have written on this blog about calcinosis in the past. However I have just been to see Mr. Goddard at the Royal Free about the really bad calcinosis in my elbows. He treated me for the hands 10 years ago and I found they came back very quickly. I told him that but he still suggests drilling out the elbows as he says it will eleviate the pain. I have to let the hospital know within three days whether I am going to go ahead with the procedure and I really can't seem to make a decision. Has anyone had their elbows drilled into and, if so, did it help and how quickly did it come back. I hope someone in our scleroderma family can help me make a decision. Xxxxxx
