I think I have a bakers cyst that has ruptured or is about to. Can I exercise? Do I need to see an Md? No leg swelling, just back of knee swollen& red
Yes, you. should see a doctor if you have Baker's cyst that is swollen and red.
Diagnosed with a bakers cyst. Advised to rest leg, swelling and pain still no better. Now my ankle hurt & is also swollen. Ddimer ruled out dvt.?
So it wasnt DVT it was a ruptured bakers cyst on the SIDE of my TKR causing pain and swelling in my knee, foot, and ankle is this strange? Not in calf
Yes strange! A Baker's cyst is often associated with internal derangement of the knee and a "rupture" releases some joint fluid but this should NOT affect your foot and ankle. You need to see an Orthopedist or Sport's Medicine Specialist for an evaluation of your symptoms sooner rather than later! Good Luck Hope this helps Dr Z. Read more...
