I recently had arthroscopic surgery on my knee to repair a few tears, clean out the 'junk', and remove a baker's cyst (the size of two golf balls) behind my knee. I started PT next day, and everything was going well the first week. The second week, I started having swelling, and then had an ultrasound of the area where the cyst was. There were over 15 cysts formed (one was already 2 inches). The doctor removed about 33cc of fluid, injected it with steroids, and put me in a full leg brace. Fine for a week. Now, the swelling is coming back. Any ideas?? I do have arthritis. I'm a 45 year old female.
