When the doctor first told me the source of my pain was a ganglion cyst, I was skeptical. I had never heard of this before and I felt anxious to understand what it meant for me. After reading up on the condition, I felt even more overwhelmed.
The doctor prescribed me a mild steroid to reduce the swelling and give me temporary relief. I followed the instructions carefully and the swelling started to reduce after a few weeks.
Soon, I was recommended to get the cyst surgically removed, after the swelling had reduced enough to make it possible. This prospect was scary and I was worried about what the outcome could be. After some contemplation, I decided to go through with the surgery.
The recovery was slow but steady and I was relieved when the cyst was eventually removed. I was told to take some time off to recuperate, and I was glad to do so.
My doctor monitored my progress after the surgery, and I was relieved to find out that all was going well. I had regular check-ups, and I was happy to report that my pain had gone away, and I was feeling back to normal.
The ganglion cyst was a painful and surprising experience- one that I had to get used to. Thankfully, with the help of my doctor and through staying informed, I made it through with no further complications.
