In Reply to: Re: Bakers Cysts information on bakers cyst/treatment posted by Raylene on January 05, 2000 at 18:22:09:

: : : : I would like some information of how to treat a bakers cyst. What treatment do I need and how long should it take to cure. Please advise me of the medication I need and how to take care of this problem.I was diognose with a bakers cyst on the underside of my knee.
: : : .Its ironic, my husband also has a bakers cyst on the underside of his knee. Reading about yours makes me feel its a lot more common than I thought and maybe not too serious, I too would like to know how to help or what to do about this cyst. Thanks for any help!

: I also had a bakers cyst on the underside of my right knee. It was quite large so my orthopedic doctor said she could cut it out and it would not come back. I had it cut out in March l999 and I ended up with a very bad bacterial infection and had to be on IV therapy in my home for about a month. I have since gotten another bakers cyst on the same leg-same place and my new doctor says they will come and go when you have osteoarthritis, like I have. Because of the terrble infection I got I can no longer have cortisone shots in that leg and I have many problems with my knee on that leg. Your husband's cyst may go away on its own because that is what I have now learned, that these cysts come and go because on inflammation. I hope this helps you.

Raylene, I read with interest your experience
with your doctor who drained your "knee"and gave
you a shot which if I remember your message didn't help and said draining the cyst itself
wouldn't help.I am in the same position as my
doctor drained my knee plus a shot and it hasn't
helped at all. Before he did his thing I had no
pain in the knee itself, just on the underside.
Now I have pain directly in the knee and no
relief from the pain under my knee and down the calf of my leg.
Would appreciate any additional information or
suggestions
