No: You will need to rest your wrist for 2-6 weeks after cyst excision. There is a risk that the cyst will recur.

Lot of typing: Yes will recover like any one else with in few few wks of time, but you can not type !4 hrs a day for 6 days a wk is lot of typing, that is too much stress on wrist joint.
