Natural PAIN Relief From Baker’s Knee Cysts, B-Relief® Capsules
Even after intrusive painful Baker’s cyst surgery and or Aspiration, In many cases the Baker’s cyst can grow back. For approximately one out of two Baker’s cysts (popliteal cyst) operations are commonly performed.
The Baker’s cyst operation usually lasts about 30 minutes, however, all surgery carries an element of risk. Complications specific to removal of Baker’s cyst are as follows: excessive swelling, delayed healing and damage to surrounding skin nerves. According to studies (link) there is, depending on the cyst’s location, a 40% to 50% chance that a Baker’s cyst will reappear. The chance of complications depends on the particular operation you are having and your general health. Ask your surgeon to explain in more detail how any risks apply to you.
Preparing For Surgery
Before the operation, there are several precautions you may need to take, especially if you are having a general anesthetic:
- Stop Smoking
- Lose weight, if you are overweight
- If you have problems with your blood pressure, heart or lungs, then your GP will need to check to make sure that these are under control and it is safe for you to have an operation.
- If you are taking the contraceptive pill, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or anticoagulants (blood thinners), make sure that your GP and surgeon are aware of this. Take any medication in with you on the day of your operation
According to Spire Harpenden Hospital if you are having the operation under local anesthesia, your surgeon will usually need to wait at least 20 minutes for the anesthetic to take effect before starting the operation. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, a cut is made over the Baker’s cyst. It is removed from the joint or tendon lining without disturbing the surrounding structures. Where a ganglion is tricky to remove, the cut will be larger than the size of the lump. At the end of the operation, the cut is closed with stitches.
Adverse Effects of Local Anesthetic
- Localized prolonged anesthesia or paresthesia ( pricking, or numbness of a person’s skin due to infection)
- Hematoma (collection of blood outside the blood vessels, usually in liquid form within the tissue; excessive fluid pressure in a confined cavity, and severing of nerves & support tissue during injection)
- Systemic reactions such as depressed CNS ( part of the nervous system syndrome) allergic reaction, vasovagal episode ( which is the most common type of fainting)
- Cyanosis (appearance of a blue or purple coloration of the skin or mucous membranes due to the tissues near the skin surface being low on oxygen, due to local anesthetic toxicity)
- Lack of anesthetic effect due to infectious pus such as an abscess ( a collection of pus that has accumulated within a tissue because of foreign materials – e.g., splinters, injecting needles)
Adverse effects of the Baker’s cyst surgery
The affected limb is elevated for up to two days to help reduce swelling. You may experience discomfort, swelling and tenderness for two to six weeks. You will need to change your bandages and dressings periodically. If the cyst was on your hand or wrist area, you will need to wear a splint or a brace to immobilize the area and minimize postoperative pain. As the incision heals, it is important to watch for signs of infection, including redness, swelling or discharge. Usually, physical therapy is not necessary after Baker’s cyst removal. But if you have new problems with joint stiffness, therapy may help you regain strength in your hand, wrist or foot. Though rare, injury to nerves, blood vessels or tendons may occur. These could result in weakness, numbness or restricted motion. Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that a ganglion cyst won’t recur, even after surgery.
There is a lack of consensus over the percentage of Baker’s cysts that return after surgery, but according to medical research it’s an average of 46%. Even with surgery there are no guarantees.
