Bakers cyst
« on: September 06, 2005, 03:36:05 PM »
I have had a bakers cyst for the last year and have had two operations done on my left knee to no avail, I am planning to go on holiday in October which means I will be flying to Egypt, is it safe to do so or is there any kneeguards I can wear while we are flying and where can I purchase  this ???

Hi ~ I think I'm not sure just why you have reservations about flying. If you're feeling that the Baker's cyst might be affected by the flight & air pressure, why not call your doctor to ask his/her advice? I have a Baker's cyst, too, & I just never thought that flying might interfere with it. Wishing you well...Ellie
