What do you suggest for a major bone cyst?
User rating for this question
In December - (My previous question) Boy broke arm and then diagnosed with major bone cyst. Local doctors recommend emergency surgery in 4 weeks. They will clean the cyst and pack with bone / marrow from germany. Local doctor also said that the cyst has crossed the growth plate, so may permanently deform the child. But now in February, another x-ray has been taken and doctors are now suggesting that because the cyst is healing so well on its own, surgery may not be necessary. The family would prefer to avoid surgery for the boy if possible, so would like a second opinion.Would also like to know if waiting maybe 2 - 3 months to see if it heals more would be ok ?
