I have just been diagnosed with a burst bakers cyst. I have had pain in the back of my knee for about 4 months which became increasingly painful to the point where I was limping and using knee support. On going upstairs I was suddenly in acute pain - it felt as if 2 rubber bands had twanged in the back of my knee - and I could not move. My whole leg was very swollen. Xray showed no knee damage and I was given a knee splint. I then developed a DVT (shown on a doppler). My knee is very much better and I can walk, drive, cycle and go up and down stairs but I still experience a lot of discomfort in the back of my knee, a tight feeling on straightening the leg and general tenderness. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms?
