Thanks for asking the question.

One additional information that is required is whether the cyst was removed from the front or the back of the wrist.

If it is on the front, the symptoms could be due to injury or irritation of one ofthe nerves passing in that region.
If on the back, it could be irritation of any of the tendons. Or if the tissue between the bones have not healed properly it can give pain on lifting any wt.

Plus, the nature of the cyst has to be known.

You should see your doctor who may order an x ray or some test for the nerves and give you further details of your condition and its treatment accordingly.

If you have any other queries, free feel to ask me.
