Hi,
Im due to have a patella re-allignment using my hamstring tendon. I also have a couple of meninscal tears and bits of debris floating around in th eknee to clear out.
I had a small amount of pain in the back of the knee, nothing regular or particularly bad.  Theres also sometime a feeling as though my leg is turning around without me telling it to, which I suppose is a muscle spasm. I dont know if this is to do with the cyst.
My o/s said that this was a Baker Cyst, and the surgery to remove these is a little bit different. He said you have to be anaethatised laying on your front, which involves tubes down the throat etc, and is a little more complicated. Im leaving mine alone, hoping that the operation I have will stop the leak!

Mine was surgicaly removed,cut entire width behind my knee, it didnt hurt as bad as the repair of the shredded menicus site did.

wow, im amazed to read some peoples' cysts have lasted 3 years! thats crazy.

i had one appear the morning after a strenuous work out. I didnt have any sort of surgery. It just gradually got smaller over time. I think it was about 4 weeks until it went completely.
