: : : : : : : :I have swelling in my left leg. I had knee surgery last feb. and swelling and pain since. I have been in several er rooms and i have no luck but take asprin and go home. well i had a doppler done and they said
i have bakers cyst. now a few days later they say a blood clot most likely because there is usually not this kind of swelling in the whole leg and this kind of pain. I mean terrible pain when i step on it or touch it even ever so lightly !
they say i need to go have a dye test in my foot and the dye will travel up the viens and show where the clot is. is this normal pain or do you think i have a clot with the bakers cysts. do any of you have this kind of pain with a bakers
cysts or just with a blood clot? wish i knew.... i am waiting until tomorrow to go to hospital for the tests! i was there yesterday and why did the hospital not go ahead with the dye tests and treat this while i was there? i could have died from this clot and they sent me home !!!!!!
our doctors are not taking care of us anymore !!! the er doctor just knew this was a clot but the kid on the doppler told him it was a bakers cysts so he let me go home!!! why would he not finish with a dye test and find out. is the cysts so close to the same as a blood clot ?
my surgery doctor lives 10 hours from me. he says its a clot..not bakers cysts....what do you think ? going to hospital...like to hear your thoughts and experience...... i work 5--- 12 hr shifts and boy this hurts standing that long..
