: : Hello everyone, new to board. I'm looking for help from anyone who knows anything on Arachnoid cyst. My doctors have said that an Arachnoid cyst is usually in the brain but in very rare cases they can be in the spine. My is at T-2 to T-12. I have had surgery twice the 1st was to totaly remove the cyst. Then in less than 2years they were doing surgery again, the cyst had returned. The 2nd surgery they drained and put a shunt in it. Now less than 2 years since my last surgey the doctors have found another mass on my spinal cord. I also have a condition called kyphosis from the laminectomy at T-2 to T-12. Is ther someone that has had this problem that would like to talk. This problem has been going on for 8 years now. Can someone tell me if the nightmare I'm living,, Will I wake up!!!!!! Please help. Ant thing would help...
: :Melissa, you will find more info in the brain/spinal cord board. Also, many neurologic sites can probably shed some light-wish you well. Paula.
