I went to the ER this past Sunday re: Cyst on left eye

Customer Question

I went to the ER this past Sunday re: Cyst on left eye between nose and eye, as well as side of face being quite pink. The cyst was drained and sent for culture. It came back with "Stenotrophomonas Maltophilia"
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: I'm to have surgery to remove the cyst this coming Friday and have a very tiny tube inserted to keep area open until tissue around it has healed. I'm 80 years old with many medical issues held at bay via medications.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and connect you two.
