The Philadelphia Phillies and Ryan Howard made fans of the baseball team nervous early Saturday, when Charlie Manuel stated Ryan Howard had suffered "a little setback" in his recovery from surgery to repair the Achilles he injured on the final play of last season.
Howard will be departing the team Sunday night to visit Orthopedic Surgeon Mark Myerson, in Baltimore to perform what Ruben Amaro termed a "routine check-up". Myerson is the same doctor that executed the initial surgery on Howard.
What Manuel really meant to say was that the slugger has developed a seroma or small cyst in the area of the wound, but everything should be fine.
However, the cyst has no correlation to the up-coming visit to Baltmore. Amaro said,
"The reason to see the doctor was routine…he might treat it, Ryan is doing fine. We don't view it as a setback."
So there is no reason to be alarmed Phillies fan, even if Charlie may have ruffled the feathers a little bit, Howard should be fine and back by some time in May if all continues to go well.
