nerve root sheath cysts..

Hello,
  I have just been diagniosed with a nerve root sheath cyst at L4 impinging on my nerve roots and about the size of a grape.I was wondering since the doc (orthopedic surgeon) has to send me to a neurosurgeon what to expect.This Cyst has a dark center and appears to be invading my spinal column as well. Help! I am worried and wondering what all this means.. What to expect etc.. Someone help me...Thanks,

The neurosurgeon will check your MRI and other scans and will discuss with you about surgery if the cyst is causing some sizeable symptoms in you, in your case by your report i think it is needed. Do not worry till you are adviced by the neurosurgeon and future course of action discussed. Visit an experieced neurosurgeon and follow up. Take care!
