Hello, I am new to this list. I have been diagnosed with a synovial cyst (L5). The cause of the cyst is facet joint degeneration. I had the cyst aspirated and have had several steroid injections but the pain comes back in about three weeks. My pain doctor is having me see a surgeon. Has anyone had a synovial cyst removed and if so, did your surgeon just remove the cyst or did he/she fix the cause?
A bit scared! How was your outcome?
