Some readers may remember that in April and then June I posted two (very detailed) descriptions of a right leg ITB problem that refused to respond to the usual treatment. I have since had an MRI and (subject to a CT scan and blood test) the diagnosis seems to be a ganglion cyst on the proximal tibio-fibular joint (just below the normal ITB problem site). Mercifully these things are benign.
I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this and if so, whether they had it surgically removed and what the recovery time was like? Any piece of info gratefully received.
Meanwhile... about 4 weeks ago while doing a hamstring curl on the left leg I felt something 'ripple' on the inside of the leg above the knee (MCL area?). It wasn't especially painful but has been a persistent niggle ever since and I am now getting some pain on the lower front right side of the left kneecap, especially when flexing or extending the leg. (Note: I haven't run at all for 3 months). Doc and knee specialist think it's just a muscle strain and will pass but it's been a while and seems worse not better. Again, grateful for any ideas or advice on self-treatment.
