I 3 wks after ganglion removal and carpal boss excision. The site of surgery is hard and look likes I have a new boss but biggest. Is this normal?
No: There is a possibility that this can be a scar or something else and you need to discuss with your physician
I went in for a ganglion removal but 2 weeks later found out I had carpal boss removed. Its been 4wks still very painful/limited motion is this normal?
Possibly: That's a bony procedure so it could certainly cause pain for several weeks. At this point you have probably been instructed to begin range of motion - over time, that should help, but may be painful initially. After surgery, an infection is always a possibility, so see your physician if there you have redness or drainage or fever.See 1 more doctor answer

Hello. I have been having numbness and tingling in my arm, wrist, and hand. I have a carpal boss and am having it removed. What is the recovery time?
