Unless it is totally ,without any question necessary, DO NOT do it!!!I wish I could go
because after I had it the tendons in my wrist snapped and I have very little use of my 1 & 2nd
finger. Also arthritus has set in and it is very painful!!
: I was wondering what are the complications if any from surgery on a ganglion on the wrist. Can other nerves or bones be adversely affected?

: Does the doctor do it with local anathesia so that I can be awake when they do it?

: Also, does one get the complete use of the hand and wrist again - to do pushups, exercise, etc.?

: How long is the recovery?

: How expensive is it?

: Thank you.
