Lymphangioma - Occipital Neck Region

During recovery from hip replacement in 2011, I developed a stiff neck. I thought I was overdoing my recovery, but the inconvenience continued. I could only turn my head 1/4 each direction with pain. After 3 doctors examined me, MRI's, CAT scans, they sent me to Baylor Dallas to a pediatrician. He told me that my "injury" was usually caused during travel down the birth canal, not a 69 year old man. He drained the pockets at the base of my skull, and my pain and loss of neck usage disappeared. It came back, however, and now I am told that they can go in there and cut out the pockets and sew them up. NO WAY JOSE!  I may be worse off than I am now. NO GUARANTEES!
I have no fever, no infection, no symptoms except painful movement side to side of my head. What are my options? Who can I go to for help?  Does anyone else have these symptoms? HELP!
Thanks

Hi there!

Well, the only definite treatment of lymphangioma is surgery while drainage may provide temporary healing. In not willing for a surgery, you may consider repeated drainage with pain management as suggested by your treating doctor.

Take care!
