Suggest treatment for severe wrist pain after ganglia cyst removal

Hello, six months ago I had a ganglia cyst removed from my inner wrist.I woke that night in severe pain as i scratched my back in my sleep ,it hurt so bad i nearly passed out and vomited.I was on pain killers for a month,when I saw my doctor again, he suggested opening it up to have a look,he gave me antidepressants and sent me on my way.. I am in constant pain,its not right. please advise me on what my options are.I think he has damaged my nerves in my skin, it hurts like sore pins and needles, and long stretch movements hurt alot,. I have endured alot of pain.Im scared now too cause my other wrist is sore,but its a lump on the upper side of my wrist. I need help now, but i dont trust my local doctor anymore. He gave me no warning of the damage that could have happened,also no options. Im a mother of four young children please advise me.

Neurologist 's  Response
Unfortunately, chronic pain from the surgery itself cannot be ruled out. Have you been tried on standard NSAID therapy, warm compresses, and wrist/hand exercises. There are also other types of pain relief agents that could be used depending on whether the pain is neuropathic or not in nature. If your doctor who performed the surgery cannot seem to find the right combination of medications to work then, I would ask the primary for a referral to a pain management specialist.
