Dear Patient ,

thank you for reaching out for help. i strongly recommend you remain in contact with your diagnosing physician , if you are not satisfied with his treatment methods you should get your self checked by another specialist but being afraid of the cysts coming back without doing anything to check on what is really going on is not the best thing to do . so dont worry and get yourself checked as soon as possible , they might not be able to insert another stint but they might have other solutions.

best regards,
Dr. Ahmad
