I just had surgery this morning to remove a ganglion on my left wrist. It has been there for over 10 years (I'm 28). I had it drained 10 years ago, and tried to drain it a month ago but nothing came out.

You can only see a bump when I bend my wrist forward, when straight it was not noticible.

When he opened me up, he couldn't find what he was expecting. Eventually, he found what he called a sheath wrapped around a tendon and removed it. But he still wasn't confident that it was what he wanted.

He closed me up saying that he couldn't see anything else, but was expecting more. He wasn't confident that it would solve my problem (my problem being pain, obviously, made much worse by applying pressure on the wrist i.e. pushups).

Any ideas? I had an ultrasound that showed "something" there... and the doc says he verified down to the joint... please respond.
