I have a ganglion cyst in my toe joint. It pushes the gelatinous mucus out of the joint and creates a bubble on top of my toe.
It has been biopsied and twice they have tried to remove it. Its been causing me irritation and pain for three years now.
I have been booked for surgery # 3 where they are going into the joint and remove all the excess tissue. We hope.
So today I was looking online to see what the procedure entails. While I was watching a video of them aspirating a cyst on someone's foot, my husband came over.
"Oh," he said with disappointment, "They didn't show the jelly."
I looked at him in surprise. The I said "I've seen some pretty shocking blister and infection videos."
"Yeah. I like to watch them remove sebaceous cysts."
Married to this man for 26 years and I did not know he liked to watch gross videos!!!
And here I thought it was my dirty little secret!
