Does anyone else suffer from these? Or do you know what causes them?
They are so unsightly, embarrassing, and can be quite uncomfortable and even painful.
I have one on my left wrist. About three years ago my mother and I paid a lot of money (weren't covered by PHI at the time) to have it surgically removed because it was causing quite a bit of pain on the joint. I was left with a small scar which (which has faded away to almost nothing).
Now it has come back again. In the last two months it has just appeared and kept growing to the point where it is constantly uncomfortable. I can't put any weight on it and my left wrist feels like it's getting weaker again (can't even open jars any more) .
Have you had surgery on yours before? Did it come back? I was told there was only a 5% chance mine would come back so I feel pretty unlucky and I'm not sure if I want to do it again, but there really isn't any other alternative.
I think mine are caused by the trama of a broken wrist when I was a lot younger, but I don't think anyone can explain what causes them.
