After a truly awful night, with the worst knee pain I've had yet, I got up at 6 a.m., and now I'm waiting for BFF to arrive. I'm probably not going to be great company today!

I have a Baker's cyst behind my knee. I don't know how to get rid of it. I do have a physical therapy order (for sciatica, which hasn't been troubling me). I may just go in and tell them it is really my knee which is the problem. But PT costs $45 per session, and I have had such an expensive month, which will force me to use savings. I just hate the idea of adding more to it.

Yesterday I spent $11 on groceries and $28 on gas. I got three MyMixx items free which were valued at $11. Variables are now at 85%, with nine days remaining.

I found a dollar bill yesterday! The other bright spot is that the weather continues cool and beautiful. I'm taking a nice long break from AC.

    I think you should do the physical therapy. Think of it as an investment in your future health. It's more important than anything.

    Patientsaver is right on. If the PT helps, then it is worth every penny and maybe they can give you ideas to do something at home. it's no fun to live with that kind of pain.

    Yep--I third that suggestion. Make it up somewhere else; don't suffer.

    Can they drain the fluid from the cyst? That would offer some relief, I'd think.

    Echoing the others. This is what money is for. Health problems can spiral when not addressed. Hope you find relief soon!

    PT is worth a try.
