Re: Synovial Cyst

Update: Husband is tentivley scheduled for back surgery on Friday, November 9th. Usually done as an outpatient surgery but he has heart issues so they said they would probably keep him for a day. It is all tentative because I have to have a large stone surgically removed and dont see the dr until next Tuesday. Will depend on when they can do my surgery. I figure it took me 2 months just to get in to see the dr so probably at least 6 weeks before surgery. In which case that should work out since they told husband that it would be 6 week recovery for him. Teteri66 - I don't know how invasive this surgery is. They said it would be a small incision and they would take the cyst and "clean out" the area. He does have arthritis in his back but they didnt feel they would have to fuse anything.
