    OT: Another Type of Cyst in Diff. loc/advice pls

    Howdy! I have been chasing my tail trying to figure out if I should keep on plugging away at a problem that I've had for nearly 3 years. The first doc (the one who performed my third c section and misdiagnosed my hernia) called it a vulvar lymph node. I went online and saw the word...

    Just Checking In

    Hi, All! Just thought I'd type a few lines to check in to the forum and give a brief 'update' on how my 'therapy' is going along, not for the pilonidal cyst, but for the other, um, problem that I've had for quite some time. I don't know if it's that levitor ani syndrome or what, but I quit...

    Update

    Thought I'd Never Say This But...
