My 14 year old has been having headaches for almost a year and has been sent to 4 different drs. They finally did an MRI and discovered a large Pineal Cyst. The first 4 drs dont think that this has anything to do with his head aches but yet nothing they have tried is working. He is finally being refered to a nerosurgeon at Duke. I'm scared and I do believe that the cyst is causing the problems. Has anyone had the surgery and how long is recovery?  I'm trying to learn as much as I can about this.
