Making a long story short, this was a post-op appointment with the provider. The procedure was done over a month ago in December for the removal of the non cancerous cyst that rested on the peripheral area inside my right arm. I was given the pros and cons of what I will expect in the aftermath of the surgery. So far, what the doctor / provider stated was accurate and on point. He is highly recommended for reason and I would not hesitate to go see him again in the future
