Finished cataract and lens replacement surgery, found cyst behind the eye. Any possiiblites for correcting ?

I just finished having cataract and lens replacement surgery on Friday. Before the surgery they found a cyst behind the eye, as the eye is healing I see clearer but I still have little or no vision from it. If I were to try reading an eye chart it would be wavy and look as if the letters were different fonts, and hard or impossible to see. I have a follow up appointment on Monday, but just wondering what are the possibilities for correcting and is it an evasive surgery? Can it be cancerous? I am a 2 time cancer survivor and most of my radiation was on the side that I have the cyst on.

I need to know what kind of cancer did you have?
If you are seeing distorted letters, your central retina has been involved. It's hard to conclude on any treatment unless we know the detail of your cancer & the exact site of cyst in your eye.
Good day & good luck...
