after a nice wee holiday i was experiencing severe pain just at the bottom of my back , couldnt move and was really sick , i got an emergency appointment and went straight to the doctors fearing i caught something abroad.The doctor told me i had a pilonidal sinus and the sickness was due to the infection, he refered me straight to hospital and i had the surgery done that day! it came as a shock because iv never had any bother with any thing like this before or any pain im a 21 yr old girl and have none of the list of causes...maybe it was sweating from the holiday heat? they didnt really explain much.i was told it was the size of a golf ball :l i had it cut out and was left with an open wound, not pleasant at al and reali embarrasing !!!!it was a complete nightmare at the start but now im getting used to it.i take a salt bath everyday and have the wound packed with aquacell and dressed at my doctors everyday , i go to them on weekdays and they come to my home on weekends. its been about 12 weeks now and the nurse has told me that its just stopped healing and was a worry , the opening of the wound seems to have healed faster and is now smaller than the tunnel inside, the pain is also worsening , there was always puss and blood coming from it but now theres lots more bood.they examined the wound and couldnt find visible signs of infection so she carried out a swap test and im waiting on results .has anyone else has this experience? does it always come back? whats going on ?
