What Happens If The Dorsal Root Ganglion Is Destroyed
Severe numbness.: Injury to the dorsal root ganglion (ganglionopathy) usually results in severe numbness without much in the way of other symptoms.
Commonly associated with trauma or arthritis the joint capsule becomes stretched.

As the body produces more or less the size of the ganglion will fluctuate. Best ...Read more

Please help! What is the functional difference between a dorsal root ganglion and a sympathetic ganglion?
Sensory: Dorsal root ganglion - related to sensory nerve system (sensation) sympathetic ganglion - related to sympathetic system (fight and flight response)hand.
Don't recommend it: Ganglions are filled with a thick jelly like fluid similar to joint fluid. They can sometimes be drained with a needle, but you usually need a large gauge needle to be able to suck out the fluid. Hard to do without local anesthesia. You hit it with a book, but hard to know how hard to hit it and not possibly injure yourself.See 1 more doctor answer
Be careful...: Ganglion cysts used to be called "bible cysts" or "dictionary cysts." if you hit these cysts hard enough, they can occasionally rupture. However, I have seen two bad situations arise from these attempted home remedies--one patient sustained a wrist fracture, while another suffered a tendon injury. See your local hand surgeon for appropriate treatment!See 1 more doctor answer

Keep area clean&dry: Call the surgeon tomorrow and ask to come in to get it rewrapped if they feel it's necessary. They may allow you to keep it open if it's clean and not showing signs of redness or inflammation.
I thick the ganglion cyst get bigger at my work but go back to the same size went I driver home & get home & move it a little before I sleep whyisthat
Effort: The ganglion is connected to the synovial space between the small bones of the wrist. The more work that the wrist is doing can express more synovial fluid into the ganglion. When at rest it can return to the space and the ganglion appear smaller. I would suspect that the communication between ganglion and wrist is moderate rather than small.See 1 more doctor answer
< 5% with surgery: Ganglion cysts are managed by being left alone or hit with a heavy book like a bible - high recurremce rate. If treated by aspiration and steroid injection - I tell my patients two thirds will come back. Lastly if treated by surgical excision - the recurrence rate should be less than 5%.See 1 more doctor answer
