3 years post-op Fulkerson, now a big lump?
« on: September 12, 2015, 12:22:38 PM »
Hey, everyone!

   I am 3 years post-op from my Fulkerson procedure. Ever since I left therapy I had developed a lump on the back part of my lower knee (into my calf area). I do not know what this could be! It hasn't really bothered me consistently all these years, but lately I've noticed whenever it does bother me, IT HURTS. It hurts to walk and my whole knee feels tired, weak, and extremely painful. I don't know if I should bother my doctor with this or what. Anyone have this issue?
