I had an MRI done and it showed two synovial cyst one was 14 X 12 mm the other 10mm at L-5S-1
with the mass efffect on the S-1 nerve. No wonder I could not walk I thought I had a broken hip and a broken foot it was awful. I finally went to an Orthopedic Dr and he ordered an MRI and gave me Diladid for the pain. They had my insurance jump through hoops and I had a MRI done within two days. I called the Dr office for the results and was told he would see me in six weeks with the results.
He gave me pain pills for 10 days......so I went to the facility that did the MRI and demanded a hard copy of the MRI and the radiolgists report. At first they said I would have to go to the Drs office and since their office was full of people I was quite assertive and demanded my stuff because the Dr was too busy to see me I was in pain and I was going to find a Dr who had time to treat me. I said my insurance had already paid them and it worked they gave me everything I ased for.......boy what pain can do to a womans assertiveness...............
I read the report and it said I had two synovial cyst in both facets at L-5-S-1 with the mass effect on the S-1 nerve.
I then emailed my Thyroid Cancer Dr with the results of the MRI and she referrred me to an Ortho Ped Dr he prescribed Neurontin and Celebrex and then referred me to a Spine and Pain Dr. I had surgery and he aspired the cyst and injected me June 11. I felt great for about month and I am in much discomfort. I have another place on my bottom that hurts so when I went bac for my check up with the Spine Dr July 20 he looked at my bottom and said I had a pinodial cyst and to see a general sugeon. He scheduled me for Aug 16 for another injection. I went to the general surgeon and he looked at my bottom and felt the agate sized knot on my bottom and said that what I had was not a pinodial cyst because there is no hair follicles in the location.......so he wanted me to get a Cscan with contrast......
I went to the hospital to get it scheduled and the Dr has to get pre authorization with my insurance before they will pay for it. The general surgeon also told me he would not be able to help me I needed a neuro surgeon...I told him I had the MRI with me and he would not even put the disk in his computer......please.....I think since the Spine Dr is on vacation I will wait and go back to him.
I have been dealing with thyroid cancer stage four for 10 years after eight neck surgeries and a couple RAI treatments I am still alive......thus my neckname Cut Throat....have educated myself with the health care system. I am aware that if you are not aggressive almost demanding you can fall through the cracks. I live on a ranch on a mountain top surrounded by the Lincoln National Forest in NM........so I have to travel to find Dr's to help me.....
Has anyone dealt with synovial cysts or pinodial cysts?
I thought my pain in the neck (thyroid cancer) was bad but
this pain in my Ass is awful!
Please help me understand.......I have been trying to read my MRI thinking the pinodial cysts or whatever they are will show up as they are rather large and hurts.
Thank you for letting me tell someone my thoughts
