Anyone had a cyst removed and would recommend getting a cyst removed?
I have a Ganglion Cyst on my left wrist, and lately it has gotten to the point where even just resting my wrist bothers me. Last fall I saw a chiropractor and he sent me to physical therapy for 2 months. That helped out quite a bit and they gave me home exercises to do. However now even those exercises are no longer helping me. I have an ACE Bandage and a splint that I use(not at the same time) for when its really bothering me. My chiropractor told me if it bothers me again I will have two options steroids or surgery and that the choice is up to me but he recommends taking it out or trying steroids. I am not fond of steroids and would like to avoid that, so that leaves surgery as my only option. I guess my question is if you have had a cyst and had it removed is it something that helped you out or do you regret having it done? I realize everyone's experience will be different but I'm just wondering if having it taken out is really the best and only solution.
