For the last week or so I've been experiencing severe pain in the wrist of my right hand. Yesterday, saw the doc and he said a ganglion cyst has developed in the wrist. It seems in most cases, these cysts disappear without any special treatment but in case they hang on, they have to be removed (sucked out using a needle). The next check up will be on Friday. Till then I'm on pain killers.

I just (8weeks ago today) had my ganglion removed from my left wrist, I had been ignoring it for 20yrs. It would come and go. I had one on right wrist but it went away. But the left this year got worse and worse, and it was time to do something when could hardley bend my wrist and it pained all the time.
It is still hurting after 8 weeks , and I can’t load my wrist at all, but the movement is better.
