I have a ganglion cyst...

Recommended Posts

Grrrr......as if I really need one more problem right now. My wrist has been hurthing for a couple weeks. I figured I did something to it at the gym, or it was just some Accutane related joint pain. It's been a while and the pain is getting worse. I noticed a small lump on my wrist......GAAAHHHHH!!! A ganglion cyst....just what I need. I can't have surgery for it on Accutane....so what the hell am I supposed to do for the next 8 months......

Wow, that must be painful. Well, I'm not sure what to say, but I hope it doesn't linger around for too long. :comfort:

It's more of an annoying pain if anything. It sucks because I workout which usually involves weight training, some of which can put strain on my wrists. I've noticed that tricep pushups and dips are becomming really painful....it only bothers me if I flex or extend my wrist. They usually don't go away on their own without drainage or surgery.........I'm wondering if Accutane played any role in it's development....

i thought you could have surgery on accutane, just not scar procedures.

Talk to your dr...surgery may be an option. My derm said surgery is done on tane patients all the time.

I asked my derm once before about surgery and he said no cosmetic surgery. I do notice a differance in my skin's ability to heal, so I'm a little concerned.....but GAHHHH!!!...this thing hurts......

I just made an appointment with a hand surgeon for a consult.......
