[QUOTE=shamrock77;5125593]Just wanted to give you all a update on the Facet Cyst Injection:
They were able to Rupture the Cyst. It took a while. I'm glad its done. Will see how it feels tomarrow.[/QUOTE]
Hi shamrock, Its wonderful that the synovial cyst is ruptured & now no more surgeries because you have certainly been through enough with fusion from T1 to L3 ! Have your symptoms lessened yet & how are you feeling post op?
That's great! I would think that the contents of the cyst being released may irritate the sciatic nerve for a few days, but that should go away quickly, especially if they gave you some steroid in the injection.
Did the doctor say what will happen to the cyst sac? Does it resorb eventually? That could still put a little pressure on the sciatic nerve root, but nothing like what you've had before.
