As the long and busy winter turned into spring, the young executive reveled in the tranquil escape he achieved out on the golf course. But as summer came on, the nagging ache in his right side made him wonder if he was overdoing it on the links. For a few weeks, ibuprofen seemed to make the pain subside, but eventually that didn't relieve it. Then he began having pain when he took a deep breath, which pushed him to get evaluated. He described his symptoms, and the physician examined him, clarifying that the pain was in the right upper quadrant of the patient's abdomen, the region housing the liver and the gallbladder.

Gov. Ridge underwent surgery yesterday to remove a small cyst from inside his right ear, and doctors expressed confidence that the operation would halt his hearing loss. Dr. Donald Kamerer performed the two-hour procedure, called an atticomastoidectomy, at the Eye and Ear Institute at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. The governor, who was put under general anesthesia, was wheeled out of the recovery room and "cracking jokes" about 11:20 a.m., said Tim Reeves, Ridge's spokesman.

There are many intricate details that go into becoming a successful softball pitcher, and Jamie Gorczynski wants to learn about every one of the them. The Cherry Hill East sophomore is off to a great start. She has solid control of her pitches and good mechanics, assets that can be taught and drilled. But Gorczynski's pitching makeup also includes something that can't be coached. It's inner strength, a trait that was severely tested in November when she underwent a partial craniotomy to remove a cyst from her brain.

Jon Glover coveted a PIAA District 1 singles championship and another chance at rival Marc Silva of Pennridge at the Worcester Racquet Club on Saturday. But the Abington senior was forced to settle for one out of two. Silva, sidelined by a painful cyst in his right wrist, did not arrive for his semifinal match against Council Rock's Lee Hecht. That gave Hecht an automatic berth in the championship. Glover did not have it nearly as easy, however. First, he had to find a way to get past Ryan Bauer of Central Bucks East in a three-set semifinal.

A 29-year-old chemist who last month pleaded guilty to a series of brutal sexual assaults in Northeast Philadelphia pleaded guilty in Bucks County Court yesterday to raping a 17-year-old girl and attacking two women in Bensalem Township. Richard Long Jr., of the 3500 block of Woodhaven Road, is already facing a maximum sentence of 90 to 180 years in jail and a $300,000 fine in connection with the Philadelphia incidents, which occurred last year. Sentencing in both the Philadelphia and Bucks County cases has been deferred, however, pending a neurological examination of Long, said Terence Houck, Bucks County deputy assistant district attorney.

One of my patients came to see me at my office for her annual gynecological visit. She was 26, and generally very healthy. I asked whether she had experienced any new symptoms or issues since I last saw her the previous year, and she hesitated. She figured it had nothing to do with my specialty, she said, but she did have this odd pain in her lower back. Her primary care physician suggested ibuprofen, but it hadn't helped. The young woman said the pain, which had started two weeks before, was very low on the right side of her back and felt like something was pushing out from the inside.

As John Rende tells the story, he was sold on the idea of having his right index finger chopped off until it was time, like, to actually do it. At least, this is one of the ways that Rende has told the story. It might change. Rende, a dentist, and two ex-New Yorkers living the good life down here, where suburbia is landscaped to Disneylike perfection and everyone lives within a wedge shot of a fairway, allegedly staged a bizarre scheme to bilk insurance companies out of more than $1.6 million.

Cincinnati third baseman Aaron Boone has a broken right hand that will keep him out of the Reds' lineup for three to four weeks. Boone was hit on the outside of the right hand by a pitch from Houston's Wade Miller during the Astros' 6-4 victory Monday. X-rays taken shortly after the injury found no fracture. The hand was still extremely sore yesterday, so Boone was sent for a CAT scan that found a small crack in the hamate bone, which is at the top of the wrist. The son of Reds manager Bob Boone is hitting .284 this season.

THE ONLY thing worse than having a career-threatening injury is having a career-threatening injury and not knowing what it is or how to fix it. That was the scary situation Eagles punter Mat McBriar found himself in last October. Through the first six games of the 2011 season, McBriar, a two-time Pro Bowler who was in his eighth year with the Cowboys, was one of the league's leading punters, averaging 49.8 yards per attempt. Then, as he prepared for a Week 8 game against the Eagles, he began experiencing intense pain in his left, non-kicking, leg. He punted three times in the first half against the Eagles, and each time he planted his left foot for the kick, he felt a shooting pain.

BETHLEHEM — Mat McBriar didn't know the source of the nerve problem that was causing him to have trouble lifting his left foot last season, making planting his leg to punt an adventure. "I just didn't have any control. My consistency was just horrendous," said McBriar, who ended up punting in 14 games for Dallas, in his eighth season on the job. McBriar, who'd made his second Pro Bowl a year earlier, ended up with a 43.8-yard gross, 22nd in the NFL and 4.1 yards lower than his 2010 figure.

THE FIRST time Andy Reid did the Philadelphia podium thing, it was 12 years ago last month at the Marriott in Center City. The day he was hired as the Eagles' coach, the unknown quarterbacks coach from Green Bay was faced with a barrage of negativity, about his new roster and his crumbling stadium and his lack of a practice facility and the perception around the NFL that this was a lousy franchise. Oh, and welcome to town. Reid batted away the questions and pushed back at the cynicism of the questioners.

Two-hundred-seventy milliliters of fluid in your left calf, arising from a problem in your left knee, is quite a bit to have sloshing around down there. Nine ounces. No wonder Cornelius Ingram's left calf was about three times the size of his right last week, at the point when the Eagles had him stop practicing and go get the whole thing checked out again. The diagnosis was a Baker's cyst, a swollen, fluid-filled bursal sac behind the knee, often associated with arthritis or cartilage damage.

Eyes closed, Jim McGowan recites in a mesmerizing voice the opening line of the PBS-televised documentary Whispers of Angels. "On July 4, 1776, a marvelous experiment in democracy was conceived. " The inflection and timbre, not unlike James Earl Jones', intensify the impact of the words, which begin the story of the Underground Railroad and the contributions of Thomas Garrett, a Delaware Quaker, and William Still, a free, black antislavery activist in Philadelphia. McGowan not only served as narrator, but he also was interviewed in the film, based in part on his book Station Master on the Underground Railroad: The Life and Letters of Thomas Garrett.

What we've learned this season from Derrick Coleman: A Bakers' cyst is different from a baker's dozen; his boys from Detroit call him "Colonel"; he loathes rehab; his temper is legendary and explosive; and to be on the receiving end of his ire is not fun. The latest revelation came with an assist to Indiana Pacers guard Reggie Miller, who somehow incited Coleman to grab his neck and pack a potent punch during the 76ers' loss Sunday at Conseco Fieldhouse....
