Can roots leading to a chalazion be removed instead of the chalazion itself ?

Is it possible to remove the roots leading to a chalazion instead of the chalazion itself!! Hi Everyone,I have had an incision and curretage since there was a chalazion in the upper lid of my right eye.Its nearly two weeks now and the chalazion has decreased in thickness and has expand a very little bit but it is in the same place .Above the chalazion outside in my eye, is aching. I feel that the surgeon had performed the surgical operation above the chalazion;maybe he eliminated its roots and not in the chalazion. Is it that the surgeon has removed the roots leading to the chalazion or Can anyone have an idea why is this so?? And also how many days does a chalazion completely cured up after its surgery??

welcome to hcm
it is practically not possible to remove all the glands that leads to chalazion..u probably have got a relapse..there are better techniqes to treat it completely..consult your ophthalmologist who will let u know about other treatment options..also get your blood sugar levels checked which can cause relapse..
