I had a ganglion cyst on in my wrist which I got removed 5 weeks ago. It was very deep and larger than the surgereon expected. The scar is healing very well, but my wrist still hurts when I bend. This takes much longer than I thought :-(

Has anyone experienced the same? How long did it take you to get rid of all pain?

I am sorry you are having so much trouble. I have had one on my wrist for 30 or more years and never even thought of having it removed. For years it bothered me a bit, then it didn't and now it is starting to be uncomfortable again. I still will, most likely leave it alone.

I waited for over a year. But it got worse and i couldn’t put any weight on my hand in the end. Definitely try to avoid surgery, nmnita.

I also have had a ganglion on my right wrist for at least 30 yrs and just about a year ago noticed it was gone, dissolved. It never bothered me and surgery is last on my list of things to do. Sorry you are having issues OP. When I noticed that it was gone I was shocked and quite happy. Our amazing bodies are known to be able to do their own healing.

I had a ganglion cyst surgically removed and never had any problem at all. But, then, I scheduled the surgery right after I first noticed it instead of waiting until it got too large. It, too, was much deeper than the surgeon anticipated but he said it was good that I caught it as early as possible.

I'm also sorry.
I simply smashed mine 30 years ago...this is the deal...our vessels...whether lymph arteries or veins are meant to keep fluid 'in'....like a bike tire tube is meant to keep in air!
If there is a weakness in the vessel or tubes wall...there can be a bulge or a leak, right?
SOoooo, the reason for the weakness in the vessel should be fixed.
Research vessel walls...you will find epithelial tissue...aaaaannnnnd what strengthens
epithelial tissue''like glue" or tape to an inner tube?
Vit C, Omega 3 and Vitamin E!
You'll never have a wall weakness again....
And hopefully you know about the leak ?... Well, it is the body's wonderful system to encapsulate things (like a cancer tumor, too)...so be happy it all got a capsule around it...a natural protection.

Break the capsule, like smashing a Vit E capsule, and the body reabsorbs the fluid.
Bingo, gone.

You don't want to do that to a lipoma, however.
Little fatty deposits?...well, they can be dealt with on your own, also.
Just do a little research.


But, as always, I have to say...see a doc if you want.

I remember years ago talk about hitting it with a phone book, but I never chose to do that. It never hurt and didn't bother anything in my life.

My doctor aspirated the cyst, injected a steroid into it and casted the arm, hand to elbow. I could not move the wrist, so no pain. Once the cast came off, there was discomfort when I used it for certain things like pushing a baby stroller or opening a jar. It lasted a few weeks.

And you only had to wait 30 years for this miracle. And why would you have surgery if it wasn't bothering you - the OP's case is clearly different.

OP - sorry you're having such a severe case - I can understand deciding on surgery under the circumstances. Do you have any follow-ups with the surgeon? Maybe you can call and talk at least to a nurse or preferably your surgeon. If not, your PCP might be able to advise you - maybe there are some things to help like heat or ice, or some gentle exercises?

What kind of pain are you still having? Is it burning, stabbing or just sore? Some bodies heal faster than others but also nerves can get cut or impinged which could be the cause.
