Hi CrystalRose325 and welcome to ehealth....Each person heals in a different way...With the cyst it probably will add to the time for recovery...I would ask my Orthopedist what his/her timetable is for this surgery...Good luck...

Post carpel tunnel surgery
Hi my name is Suz and I just had carpel tunnel surgery on 11/21 with a removal of a ganglia cyst on the upper right foot, I see my doctor for a follow up exam on 12/4. I am in the health care field doing hands on work (I.e. bathing, cooking and cleaning). I'd like to know about how long recovery time before I can start using my hand to perform my work duties?
