Is it okay to wear a sling after a ganglion cyst removal surgery?

In brief: Yes

Usually a sling isn't necessary.
What you need is a wrist braces so that you do not bend your wrist until the ganglion has a chance to heal. They don't heal very fast so i would give it 6-8 weeks with the splint on all of the time and another month with the splint only if you are going to be using your hands a lot.
