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.
