Synovitis/ arthroscopy recovery
« on: March 14, 2009, 01:45:53 AM »
Hi,
I'm sure it's covered here somewhere so maybe someone can just post a link, but I have a couple of questions:
1)Knee arthroscopy showed no damage, but effusion and severe synovitis - large bakers cysts already diagnosed. Doc says no point googling to find an answer, wait for biopsy results, but any clues?
2) I'm a runner, knee feels fine though still swollen even days after the op. Physio says no strenuous exercise until 4-6 weeks. Am I doing any damage by walking/ potentially running, if it's e.g. arthritis?
I know it's a waiting game, but any tips from other 'people in the know' would be appreciated. Thanks!

hey,
i would wait off for the runing untill you get the results back.  your knee is still recovering from the surgery even tho it may not feel like it.  if you really feel up to it start off slowly walking and just work your way up. if your knee starts to hurt i would stop.  b/c if it is arthritis you could do more damage.  Do they think it is arthritis?

best of luck!!

Thanks for that - will try not to run too soon! Yep, they think it could be rheumatoid, but I don't carry the gene for it and it's not osteo. Baker's cysts can be caused by lots of things it seems....
