I have OA in my knees as well as RA. I have had knee pain for the last 3 years and have had a lot of pain in my calves. After telling my Rheumatologist this for over a year the pain and swelling in my calves finally got bad enough that I went to an urgent care clinic. They had me schedule and ultrasound to rule out a DVT and came back with a diagnosis of a Baker's cyst. I just came from my Rheumatologist where they reviewed the ultrasound pictures. They said I had a two lobed baker's cyst. One lobe is 6cm x 1.5. The other is 9cm. Everything I find on the net says that most baker's cyst average around 3 cm or smaller. I can not find anything on multiple lobes. I have an appointment with an orthopedist in a couple of weeks to discuss if surgical removal is needed or what. Is this really so rare that there are no post on the net.View Thread
