Severe pain and indentation on the ulna after a ganglionectomy. Small knot developed. Due to the compression caused by the cast?

I had a half cast out on after a ganglionectomy. This caused severe pain and indention at the end of the ulna. The pain lingered on but the surgeon dismissed my concerns. It is now 4 months later and not only do I still have the pain and burning, but have developed a pea sized knot at the end of the ulna. I suspect this is not normal, but what could have happened when the cast was compressing that area?

Yes their are chances it may have occurred due to the cast compressing, I would advice you to have pea sized knot at the end of the ulna checked by the physician, and discuss about ongoing pain and burning issues.
