Went and saw the orthapedic and we have decide against surgery for the moment. It's a ganglien(spell?) cyst. It of couse has not been giving me any problem for about a week. But he did say that if it flares up again to give him a call and we will get it taken care of. Kind of glad about not having surgery!! It wont be that big of a deal if we ever have to do it. Thanks so much for all your prayers!

Glad to hear that you don't have to have surgery hun, and your foot is doing better. Hugs.

You know, if it was on your wrist that Grandma could fix it by 'whapping' it soundly with the family Bible? Works on feet, too!!

That's good news!

I get those on my wrist occasionally(hiding my wrist from Sandy!)

So glad you don't need surgery right now. I had one of those in my wrist, but it required surgery. I wish it could have been resolved by whacking it! Barb

Sandy I have heard of that and even offered to "help" an old boss with one on her wrist but she declined. Just don't understand why.:icon_heh:

Sandy, you have such useful info to share! I've heard of the "whapping" method too.
