So, on December 18th I checked into a surgery center here and had my wrist operated on. Apparently it was good to get it taken care of as the doctor said I had a "grape cluster" of cysts above the tendon, and then a huge, single cyst underneath, which is really unusual but explains the pain I was having. I loved my doctor, the anesthesiologist and nurses could not have been nicer, and everything went well. It was really strange to have my arm completely numb and in a sling and not even be able to control anything. And then as I could feel it I found myself wishing I couldn't, but the pain wasn't too horrendous and I didn't even have to take many of my big girl pain pills. Each day was a little better and after 3 days I got to lose my soft cast.
Here is what the scar looks like today.
Now my wrist is back to almost full capacities and no longer hurts whenever the weather is cold. I look forward to being able to use my wrist fully in years to come.
