Hello everyone, I would like some help with a dilemma. I have an appointment to have my right thumb 'debulked' this Friday. A good term huh?! Basically they are planning to take away some of the copious calcinosis in my thumb. I would really appreciate knowing if anyone has had any experience of this, good or bad. I searched through some of the historical posts on the site and they all said that no one would recommend surgery as the calcinosis comes back really quickly and thus the surgical risk is not worth it. I would appreciate all your thoughts on the matter.
