this is what we call tarlov cyst. and i am so fortunate to have 2 in my spine and lucky enough to have the symptoms (right cyst – around 3cm, left cyst – around 1cm) . Cysts with diameter of over 1.5 cm are more likely to be symptomatic.
aetiology — unknown
pathogenesis — unknown
treatment — conservative with pain killer since surgery is the last last option.
mum and dad, i know both of you are very worried but please STOP discussing about the traditional medicine, the alternative treatment and the berry juice….. with me….
and no need to take turn to call me every single day and ask me the same questions.. just behave like usual, am just fine.. and i won’t tell you how severe is the pain to make you more worry, unless i really need surgery or have not enough money to buy arcoxia.
