OK so last year I was hurt at work and a ganglion cyst appeared in my knee...they said it was there but what I did aggrivated it enough that it blew up and I had it surgicaly removed on Nov 3rd. On Tuesday night I noticed my knee felt very stiff and tight and had a hard time sleeping, tonight at work it swelled so bad that I couldn't straighten it all the way and I couldn't bend it very far. My knee is huge and there is a hard lump. I did some searching and found that a recurring ganglion could mean rheumatiod arthritis in the future but all my blood work for this has been negetive.
I don't want this pain, I have enough with my hands and feet that anything hurting in between is not needed dang it.
I am calling my ortho in the morning to see if I can get in to see him. Last time I was out of work till June and it was not fun.
Has anyone else had recurring ganglion cysts and if so what did they do for them??
