Well, today I went to my rheumatologist doctor's to get a Cortisone shot in my knee to help deal with this Baker's cyst, and the inflammation around the knee and also my swollen calf which never got better - even worse...with my ankle and foot also getting swollen. I still have to elevate my leg and apply ice to my knee. Maybe in a day or two things will be less swollen and the Baker's cyst will begin reducing?
