Ganglion pain help!!

I had a ganglion on my finger removed about 10 yrs ago (when dd1 was a baby and still bf) it had been causing me pain but once it was taken out it didn't return.

I have got another one on a different finger and it is AGONY. Can't push ds2 buggy properly, lift his carseat, I keep catching it and the pain makes me want to throw up.

Went to gp to get ref for removal but they said no?? Apparently as I'm still bf ds2 it won't work?? I said it worked fine when dd1 was a baby and still bf and explained how it is causing pain daily and making simple activities v hard.

They still said no. I can't afford private treatment.Is there anything I can do? It HURTS so much sad

I dont understand how it would not work becuase you are bf?! Makes no sense at all.

I had one aspirated on my hand - they suck the stuff out with a hollow needle (GRIM) but I cannot see how that would be affected by BF.

Can you see another GP?

It was something to do with me having EDS, and still bf making joints even more hypermobile?? But I've had it done before while still bf and it worked then !

I'm in pain with it every day I just want it cut out.
