Hi, Lisa.

First of all, your history of many surgeries and ultimate knee replacement is one of the basic failure of the allopathic paradigm! NONE of then did one thing about why you had the problem.

How are you doing with your SR? The increased pressure within the joint, due to the "bracing" that has caused everything, is what causes the rents.

Any orthopedist, worth their salt, KNOWS what medical students are taught in their sophomore year: "Proper surgery for a Baker's Cyst includes locating the rent in the joint capsule and repairing it." Even if the "cyst" is not removed, if the leak can be closed, the body will soon reabsorb the fluid making up the swelling. You should not have to remind your surgeon of this!!!!!!!!

The answers to your first 3 questions are: yes, no , yes.

Walt
