HI, had a scan of my knee because of regular pain after running and it appears that i have a bakers cyst. my GP said that they dont tend to drain the cyst because they do reoccur. (NHS cost???))
i can run, but my leg is very painful after a run. and i feel that i cant really push myselft becuase my knee is a bit sore whilst i run.
anyone out there running with a bakers cyst? what do you do to relieve the pain and disconfort? looking forward to reading your comments. will be appreciated.thanks
Had one post op...apparently not that rare, If it goes firm get the could ask quack for a cortisone shot. I had one and it helped healing immensely. Literally could not bend the joint pre-shot.That was April last year and cyst free since
thanks for your reply? did you have to ask your GP for it or did he suggest it. I am in pain when bending my knee after a run, and would really like to get it sorted. thanks
Did you get it sorted? I've been having dreadful pains down the back of my leg after running, so I went to see the physios. She's told me it's likely to be a baker's cyst. I'm desperate to get it fixed. Did you keep running despite having the cyst?
Hi Miriam, just posted very simliar! have you got it sorted yet? if so how?
