First let me say hello to everyone here. My name is Chris, and i just had my cyst removed Thursday. My first night after the surgery was horrible. I was in alot of pain. I think that was due to the packing though. I had it removed at my follow up appointment yesterday. That was by far the worst pain I have ever felt in a very long time. The doctor decided not to re-pack it, which I am so thankful for. He has given me 2 weeks off of work to rest and heal. I wanted to thank everyone for their postings on this website. When I first learned it was a polinidal cyst, I found myself here researching it. Lots of good people and answers here. Thanks to everyone again. I will tell everyone how I am recovering in the weeks to come.
