In brief: Not related

The cyst on the back of the leg is usually a rheumatoid finding.
Like popliteal cyst that come and go with Arthritis.
Swelling in the feet can be due to the position change, or needing a water pill due to heart disease.
The stent in the heart keeps the vessel patent.
So you can see they are not related. Although you are! Need to see the primary doctor again to get the foot swelling treated.
