Ever heard of a bakers cyst??.no!  Nor had I .its symptoms are just like a thrombosis in the calf muscle ,I can't walk .had ultra sound scan

Spent all day at hospital yesterday ,having tests ,my trial nurse holding my hand ..bless her heart .we have a thrombosis treatment team ..they were so on the ball.not wasteing a minute to check me out ,I'm now resting with my leg elevated ,it will slowly disperse into my calf ..it's a golf ball behind my knee joint ,because of rheumatoid arthritis in my old joints ,,being on the Majic trial has it's advantages I reckon ......keep twinkling ,,,,,
