I have a cyst on the back of my knee and need to see a knee specialist now. Guess when the appointment is.......six weeks from now !!!!!!! It really hurts and is mimicing deep vein thrombosis each time it bursts, but obviously not life threatening. The discomfort is just making me want to eat eat eat!!!! I'll be damned if I end up with all my weight back on though. Anyone had similar and have advice ?
