I just got my MRI results today...well, the preliminary ones...apparently it is a ruptured cyst behind my knee. Symptoms are that it gets aggrevated as I run...it will then be sore for a few days and eventually go away...unless I run again...which I did yesterday (raced a half mar and probably shouldn't have). I'm now just waiting for my appointment with the orthopedist...I've read a bit about Baker's Cysts...but I just didn't think the pain coincided with the symptoms of a bakers...maybe I'm wrong though. Does anyone have any personal experience with these? I'm kind of curious how long I'll need to stay off it in order for it to heal properly...also, should I need to worry about any surgery? Thanks in advance.
