no the pain started 2 hours ago, the baker cyst was drained about 4 months ago
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

that isn't really typical of a baker's cyst

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
