I got two cysts removed from my lip that were interfering with my playing. Some of you may remember the thread I posted about it about two months ago. I went to Dr. Simon McGrail in Toronto where I live. The surgery took only about 10 minutes and was pretty painless except when he zapped a part of my lip that wasn't totally frozen with the cauterizer. You can hardly tell that there are stitches in my lip, but it is really swollen right now. It hurts a lot, but I guess that is expected when someone cuts your lip open and removes stuff from it. The Dr. said it would be a week before I could start getting back in shape unless anything abnormal comes up. I can't wait.
