I'm so happy your healed up and doing great! I would have totally been freaked out those situations as well but I'm glad everything was ok. I had a quick question. I did have the pit picking procedure done last Thursday (Aug.30). Everything went great but today I noticed 3 of my 7 stitches had popped open. I am going to call the doctor on Monday but I was just curious if you had any advice. I'm having a hard time getting this area bandaged properly and maybe thats the problem. Thanks! Your posts have been so helpful, and if this procedure doesn't clear up my pilonidal problem I will definitely get the cleft lift.
