Question: What happens during ganglion cyst surgery?

The doctor made a cut (incision) in the skin over the ganglion. He or she removed the ganglion and the connecting tissue that allowed fluid to collect there. Then the incision was closed with stitches. You may have a splint over the area to limit movement until the area heals.

How long does it take to recover from a ganglion cyst removal?

You can expect some soreness and swelling at the site of your incision for a few days. Remember to elevate your hand above your heart to help reduce swelling and use ice packs to help with discomfort. Most patients feel much better within the first few days, but it takes two to six weeks for a full recovery.
