Hi, cindy.

What have you learned from the Baker's archives??? This is not even a true cyst.

In my opinion, apparently the surgeon doing this does not know enough to locate, and repair, the rent in the capsule causing it. Just locating and removing the "cyst" is of temporary benefit at best.

What have you done about the causes of your arthritis?

See the glossary for any unfamiliar terms and let us know what you learn.

Walt
