Hi, 5 months post bilateral tkr. Now the right knee has developed a bakers cyst. Very painful. Did anyone else get a cyst after tkr? What is the best thing to do? Any suggestions? Thanks.

      Hi Marie

      I had a bakers cyst for almost a year prior to my tkr in September 2016. It eased up shortly before my op but it feels as though it has returned as I too am having problems bending my knee. I'm seeing my PT tomorrow and will see what he has to say. Hope your cyst disappears soon.

    Hi Jen

    A Baker's cyst is caused when excess joint fluid is pushed into one of the small sacs of tissue behind the knee. When this sac fills with

    fluid and bulges out, it is called a cyst .

    The cyst is a symptom of something else going on in your body. Perhaps arthritis, an inflammation.

    Kind regards
