Hello Daniel84,I'm sorry to hear of this problem with your bursa and its removal. I became sad because you're so sad now. Perhaps it's best to tell the doctor about your concern and that you're feeling so blue now.If you can't reach the doctor easily, call his/her nurse to tell her (the nurse) so she informs the doctor.I hope that things in some way improve greatly for you and that the sorrow and anguish end quickly or in time.

Hello my name is Daniel Fries. I recently had my Bursa removed from the top of my knee cap. I am at 3 and 1/2 weeks of recovery. I have noticed after taking off the Ted stocking, and tape today that it looks as if there is more fluid getting into my knee. Nothing like before.. which was drained twice before the removal or excision had taken place. which the first time it was drained there was 30cc of fluid the second time 15. by the time the surgery had taken place the doctor said they removed the sack it was the size of a goose egg which he estimated it to be about 60cc. Now that im off crutches, knee support , staples, and tape I think i am developing another pocket of fluid. My question is should i go ahead and head back to the doctor there may be 5 cc or less of fluid.. currently im icing, with an ace bandage over the ice to keep it in place. I am so disappointed. It makes me want to cry. Im 24 years old and feel helpless.
