Thanks for the info! No one mentioned diet but I think it's just there to be there haha. Only thing with mine is that is so darn hard and most are soft. My podiatrist said it was NOT a bone spur but I'm seeing a orthopod at end of month. Defintely an issue. Now I find that when i move my foot a certain way it's excrusiating, that is kind of new too, so with the tingling of my toes, I'm finally going to a foot and ankle surgeon. My brother said to look into gout because it's not just big toes that get that. Can even be knees which I never knew. So blood work is in order, besides both my hips are in pain now so the chiro is next being I do have numbless and tingling in the right hand and neck and sciatic pain at times. I'm a mess at 49 ugh.

It was explained to me that a vessel wall is supposed to keep fluid IN!
If fluid leaks out...
ya got a problem with the vessel wall integrity ...like a tire with a bulge in the side!
There is a weakness where there should be no weakness, hello!

Been taking Vit E ever since...no problem.That was 25 years ago.

Oh PS...I would never have it surgically removed...but I understand
I am an 'alternative/ horse sense ' type-a-person...I do tiling and
dry walling and concrete work myself, ya know.
I put a thin book on my wrist and smashed it with a mallet...felt like a quick beesting as the encapsulation broke...the body reabsorbed the fluid.

The body is a wonderful thing
...a leak and it sends out armies to
encapsulate the area...thus, we have a tumor, instead of
cancer flowing freely all over THE PLACE!
Until it can't hold it anymore... ...then we have floaters.

Your issues can be remedied so easily...don't get discouraged.
And I'm way older than you and have had MANY problems in my early years.
I got smarter and take care of my own issues now...so far so GOOD!
(But, Im an inquisitive type and in the health field....hate relying on the AMA)
Funny what good orthodics cured! (Walkfits for $20 sooo good!)

Their is a field you could investigate..ART, Active Release Therapy...since you mentioned
hips I thought of it...special Chiropractors practice it...after specific training.

Can be googled.

Ever get a DEEP tissue killer massage? Get 3 of those and see.
Drink a glass of red wine first.

Default Wasn't a ganglion cyst after all

Saw the ortho doc and it was a bone spur. Had outpatient surgery on the 9th of Feb. I go to my two week follow up appt. on Tues. Long incision, still have some numbness but all went well.

foot surgeon who said that the sack was not completely removed. I was going to have him do the
surgery but he wanted to do many tests because he was going to use an anesthesiologist to put
me completely under (btw, I've had a couple of surgeries that were done without that & no problems).
So I went back to the original surgeon (not too many options here) but he is well known in his field.
Had the surgery (a local anesthetic), they put my foot in a cast this time and then a boot after that.
The problem is that it is still very painful after 5 months. I've asked him about the pain and never get
an answer or he will say "I'll be right back," and then I'm directed to the check out.
If I didn't have to wear any shoes, there would be no problem.
Hi there Bailey, just wondering how things are for you these days with regard to your ganglion/foot situation. Hopefully things have been sorted for you by now. I was checking out the blog with interest and can very much relate to your situation. I also have what it left from surgery on a ganglion cyst top of right foot that no longer allows me to wear most of my footwear and I get a lot of pain in my foot and angle that makes taking longs walks very painful and near impossible. Even walking short distances is a problem sometimes. If you have any insight I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance and again, hope all your problems and pain are a thing of the past

I had a ganglion cyst on one of my wrists a few years ago and it was really bothering me. People at work told me to just "hit it with a book" (i.e. slam a book onto it, which would pop it and it would go away). I thought they were nuts. I went to my doctor and he told me I could have surgery to remove it, but the easiest thing to do would be to "hit it with a book". I laughed out loud that the doctor was telling me the same thing.


So that's what I did. I went home, found a decent weight hard-bound book, put my hand on the couch and gave it a swift bang with the book, which burst the cyst and it went away. It didn't hurt, I didn't have any issues from doing this. It worked!

I keep trying this and it doesn't work. All it does is make the spot go white for a few seconds. Am I not hitting it hard enough? Maybe subconciously my other hand is afraid to do it because they did say that they couldn't drain it because it was too close to the vein. It's probably best it didn't pop..might rupture my hand.

I hate it. It makes me not want to type that much because the pain will start if I type too much. I'm getting pain from typing now. Granted it doesn't severely hurt but I know that it's always there and it makes me distressed as my hand feels "wrong"..like I can feel it sticking out.

^^^sorry to hear that HB1604.
Ugh. It is still a problem. I still get pain in that foot and I have to watch what type of shoes I wear. Also,
when the pain is more intense than usual, I have to move the foot around which sometimes lessens
the pain/problem - it's like something snaps back in place.
I'm sorry to hear that you too are having the same problems. It is my personal opinion that
the foot surgeon messed up....and there was no reason to put a cast on that foot (almost up to
my knee) which 2 other doctors said that was completely unnecessary.
Also, I was given some type of shot by another specialist for another problem (my hand)
in that foot who said it would help. Not only didn't that shot work but man oh man did that
shot hurt.
