Baker's Cyst on post ACL reconstruction
« on: February 18, 2005, 10:30:54 PM »
Im a 37 yr old baseball player with an ACL knee reconstruction.
Even it though it took me about 18 months to be 100% (maybe a bit more) i've felt great.
Strengthening my leggs, pretty much doing my homework.

For the last few weeks I've felt a cracking on my knee whenever im stretching my quads.
And last week I had the same cracking but this time by the time i got home from the gym my knee sweeled prety much. I had to dust the cane a little bit ( it has been on my closet for a long time)
A few days after I decieded to see my OS.  I had an MRI done and the diagnose was a small baker's cyst and a small joint effusion.
Wont be able to see my OS until next tuesday and was wondering if anyone could share their thoughts .

hi luis,
I too have a bakers cyst following acl recon.  My bakers is 3X.05 cm
Im not even sure what a bakers cyst is?  Do you know?  Does it cause you pain?
I just found out about mine.
Although im facing another recon and possible lateral corner repair according to this new doc i have been seeing.
Do you have pain on squats?
