Stenosis / Cyst - ….. If you recall, I had symptoms very similar to yours and was looking for any kind of relief. My back pain and sciatica seemed to get worse and worse each day until I was at my wits end. Just days before I was to go in for major back surgery, I found this site online. I had discovered that my stenosis was caused by a cyst, and was searching around on the web for a cure. I ordered the Red Desert calcium montmorillonite clay that day. In 4 to 5 weeks my sciatica was completely gone. I have since resumed all physical activities including weight lifting, walking, swimming, yoga, and palates. Barry H. - California
A six-year outcome study of the treatment of ganglion cysts on the dorsum (back) of the wrist compared excision, aspiration, and no treatment. Neither excision nor aspiration provided long-term benefit better than no treatment. Of the untreated ganglion cysts, 58% resolved spontaneously; the post-surgery recurrence rate in this study was 39%.  A similar study in 2003 of ganglion cysts occurring on the palmar surface of the wrist states: "At 2 and 5 year follow-up, regardless of treatment, no difference in symptoms was found, regardless of whether the palmar wrist ganglion was excised, aspirated or left alone."
