Hello all, I had a PCL and meniscus repair just under 6 months ago. I had some issues before getting surgury with fluid build up in my knee. Over the past week I have developed a fluid sac on the side of my knee causing pressure when I fully bend it. Has anyone experienced this before? I asked my surgeon over the phone and he said its nothing to worry about, but the fact that my knee feels pressurized whenever I bend it is a little concerning.

Thank you

I wouldn't worry too much about it. If it's quiet, I can hear fluid squirting around when I bend and straighten my knee. I'm currently ~18 months out from a full dislocation and repair (including PCL). It takes time, but the body is usually good about reabsorbing fluid.
