Re: Hematoma in calf after knee surgery

I am 4 mo post op w/ Oxford left medial uni. Implant looks good on x-ray. Complications from recurring Bakers cysts (2). One ruptured w/ leakage into calf (ouch). Drained under ultrasound w/ good result. Continuing to investigate why knee is getting so irritated with activity. R/O lateral tears, allergic reaction (cement). Need to watch for DVT and compartment syndrome due to intrafascial pressure. I remain optimistic. Knee itself feels better than before surgery -- BUT these complications in the calf SUCK !! Any thoughts and ideas would be helpful... seemore48
