Since you have had your surgery what were the findings from your biopsy?
My pathology report says:
-Some fibroadipose tissue, skeletal muscle, and scant synovium is attached to the cyst
-Benign fibroadipose tissue
-Mass is partially lined by flattened cells, some of which appear to be histiocytes (CD31 positive). Some of the cells may also be fibroblasts or flattened synoviocytes.
The report says a lot more, but it's too much to type here. I tried to pull out what I thought was important. The doctor said that my tumor was rare and that he has only seen about 3 other tumors in the synovium like mine.
Luckily for me it's not very painful but back of leg, heel, bottom edge of foot and several toes are now numb. I guess the tumors stretched the nerve causing the damage and they think it is now scarred. Now arthritis has set in and I'm looking at a TKR before too long.
I have not had any numbness in my foot or anything like that. All I know is that ever since I fell off of that ski lift things have NEVER been the same! I don't have arthritis anywhere else in my body, I am 33 years old so I would hope that I'm too young for that. Since in the past the doctors sort of blew me off regarding this injury, I may have developed arthritis. I noticed this tumor 1.5 years ago and thought it was swelling; I kept icing it then finally went to another doctor because it was becoming very painful.
This is just so frustrating, right before this injury I used to run a distance of 4-6 miles per run, 5-6 days a week. I hate this, I can't do anything!
