yes, the fall could have ruptured the ganglion cyst and caused more cysts to form.
or the fall could have caused a bone fracture in the wrist as well.
you need an xray of the wrist and possibly an MRI scan to see what is going on there
you could have ruptured the synovial sack in the wrist possibly as well.
have you seen a wrist surgeon about your pain?
I had xrays the night I fell and I had suffered an avulsion fracture of my left middle proximal phalanx. I am due to see wrist surgeon in 3 weeks
There were no fractures found in the wrist, have had ultrasound
that is good.
then most likely other new ganglion cysts coming up.
if they are painful, you might need to have them removed surgically.
I am glad you have an appointment to see a wrist surgeon coming up.
best of luck to you
Thank you I primarily wanted to find out if bursting a cyst can spread it to more area eventually and yes very painful
you are welcome
I hope you get some pain relief from your pain
