On the chances of repair d_q, it seems to depend on the type of damage caused. Because I found a relevant 2014 report below.
The report deals with extreme
gout Uric Acid Arthritis, and extreme uric acid lowering. So, it doesn’t exactly match your situation. But I believe the principles still apply. So there’s strong evidence to suggest bone erosion will repair itself. Unfortunately, less chance of Joint Space Narrowing reversal, or cartilage repair.
