So, it took longer than two weeks, but the cyst did go away. (Last on “The Cyst,” Chance’s vet said to give it two weeks before he cuts it out. Chance’s owners, the rescue agency, decided to give it longer than that … and good thing!) I had started to worry it would never go away, because while it shrank quickly at first, it stuck around at the same reduced size for a long time. But during last month’s physical (about five weeks after we first found the cyst), I couldn’t find it at all. Good stuff.
