Misdiagnosed for 6 years, she is finally having surgery to correct hey ankle issue. When she was 12 (and every year since thru MRIs) we were told a benign, inoperable tumor was causing the pain. I got a second opinion and found out she didn't have a tumor, rather, a cyst has grown into the bottom if the tibia at the ankle joint. On Friday, she will have surgery to remove the cyst. Send her some encouragement!
