Lets build some hurting bombs!

« on: December 13, 2006, 07:00:06 AM »

Anyone here ever have a ganglion removed by surgery?  Is a lump, often found on the back of the wrist that is filled with a gel-like substance.  Seems the fluid is basically joint fluid that is slowly leaking into the cyst.  It's about an inch in diameter and fairly visible when I bend my wrist.  It only hurts when I do barbell presses of any sort.  So far I have avoided the issue by doing dumbell excersises.

I was thinking about getting it surgically removed, but would like to know what the recovery period is, how long till I can lift properly again?

Can you drain it?  Huh

Maybe you should see if wrapping your wrists during heavy pressing movements helps before going into surgery.You never know.  A wrap creates fluid pressure and joint stability in a specific area where the wrap is applied.  If you can drain it, then it might prevent it from coming back, unless it's painful all the time an a professional opinion says otherwise.
