Baker's Cyst

Posts: 372

In a 24 hour period, I had two trips to the doctor's office and one trip to the ER and zero sleep. The pain in my leg has been incredible. And although my knee hurt, the majority of the pain came from my leg.

Xrays showed that knee has Osteo Arthritis and Blood tests indicated a blood clot but the subsequent ultrasound showed no clot. Instead they found two Bakers Cysts behind the knee -- apparently not all that uncommon in arthritis. One cyst is the size of golf ball. The other is the size of a softball and is pushing on my calf. Next, I'll be seen in Orthopedics.

Has anyone here had experience with Bakers Cysts?
