    Welcome to the forum. I am sure you will find dupport, help, advice and friendship here. There are lots of others on this forum that have had problems with their knees and I expect that they will be able to assure you about your forth coming procedure.

    Good luck with your operation. Please keep us up to date with your arthritis.

    Hello GrandmaS and welcome.

    I think this is the removal of crystals, possibly due to gout or pseudo gout. Am I right? If so, it's not a common topic on here but UI've found you a former thread . Maybe, if you re-post on the Living With Arthritis forum, someone with experience of it will see and reply. Good luck with the op :D

    Might be worth a look?

    Bets of luck
