It really isn't a big deal, for me every time I had it done it really felt good to get the pressure off! Most of the time when I had it done it was to drain the blood out of the knee! I guess I am like PALady in that respect as I have had it done more than once! ButI have had my both my knees aspirated so many times I can't begin to count. I have had Laprascopic surgery done on both of my knees but at different times and for different reasons. Heck the very first time I had it done I was only 16 and still in high school I wrecked my knee in wrestling. The last time I had it done I was in my 40's and in nursing school !
