DR. LEE: So I’m going to treat
the one on her upper eyelid, [INAUDIBLE] so if you
want to lay this gauze, because it kind of
drips a little bit. Does this hurt you at all?
HILDA: No. DR. LEE: Open wide there. That’s– that’s a– that’s
a water-filled cyst. See, it has, like, a milky– milky kind of contents
that squeeze out of it. Just squeezing it out,
making it nice and flat. And you can see the
opening to it right there. I’m just going to try to
open that a little bit more. A little buzzing noise
you’re going to hear. [BEEP] You OK? Did that hurt or just
took you by surprise. By surprise?
HILDA: Yeah. DR. LEE: OK. DR. LEE (VOICEOVER):
It’s difficult to work around the eyes, for
me and for the patient. Obviously, I don’t want
to nick an eyeball. And for the patient too. Can you imagine
you’re awake and you know somebody is so
close to you and has to have such steady
hands because they’re holding such sharp objects? DR. LEE: See, we can
see all that milky kind of substance squeeze out. And try to disrupt the
sac as much as I can. But it’s tough. It’s tough in these
little nooks and crannies. And we have so many and
they’re all kind of connected. I feel like if we can
stay on top of them and get you on a plan where we
can kind of keep them in check. DR. LEE (VOICEOVER): Previous
doctors who removed these did not destroy the entire sac. And they’re really
delicate sacs that contain these hidrocystomas. So I’m going to pay
special attention to that. DR. LEE: I feel like
I want to call them cisterns or, like,
little caves that you can see that the cyst is in. And they’re so thin-walled
you can’t see the wall. Look. See how that was
deflated [INAUDIBLE] but there’s another one. See how there’s a bunch
of them right here? You have hidrocystomas
on top of hidrocystomas. DR. LEE (VOICEOVER):
Hilda’s case is pretty unique because she
has a lot of hidrocystomas. It could be that her
previous surgeries have contributed to the
fact that they’re all now on top of each other.
