It's lump it's lump it's on my head

After receiving complaints that my cyst story didn't have an ending, I thought I'd finish it off.

The doctor packed the cyst, but by Saturday night the packing was coming out a bit. So I decided to remove it on my own. I tried to pull it out, but it hurt. So I went to bed, and started fiddling with it in the dark. (The packing, that is.) I tugged it gently, and the gauze strip started getting a bit longer. So I kept tugging and providing gentle, steady pressure to it. After about 20 minutes or so, I felt the entire thing slip out. I went into the bathroom, turned the light on, and I was holding a six-inch-long strip of bloody gauze.

And that's how you unpack a cyst!
