I read this site daily. It has helped me tremendously. I am at 8 1/2 weeks

And doing fantastic. My only problem is RA and Osteoporosis. I had a Baker's

Cyst behind knee I had surgery on. I have to have surgery on my other knee and

I also have a Baker's Cyst behind that knee. My surgeon said it could come

Back on the knee I had TKR. Has anyone else experienced this.? What are

the chances of it coming back. Baker's Cyst are very painful.

    My surgeon told me that the reason for the baker's cyst was because of the bad joint (no cartiledge and arthritis).  And once I had my partial knee replacement, the baker's cyst would automatically drain and go away.
