I recently had surgery in May. I had the cleft lift procedure I believe (rotated the flap, etc.). The doctor said this is the best procedure and the only one he hasn't seen a recurrence. I had the stitches removed at 2 weeks and all seemed to be in order so I went back to work even tho I sit all day. I used the coxyx cushion just in case, etc. My wife and I soon noticed a small part closest to the anus would not heal. It was like a small superficial wound/hole. The doctor said he would prefer not to see it but did the silver nitrate and suggested baths or at least shower head to keep clean. I've been back a few times and it just won't heal. It was looking a little worse even yesterday so he has suggested surgery to just cut around that spot and reclose the wound. It sucks because everything else has healed greatly and I supposedly don't have the cyst anymore but dealing with all the annoying symptoms. Has anyone had a similar experience? I hope surgery is the right answer. He has said I don't have to limit activities so I guess it's just bad luck that it won't heal even though I wonder if I'm causing it by doing certain things. Any tips or thoughts are appreciated. I'm hoping maybe this simple 2nd surgery will heal me for good but I can't help but feel maybe I could have gotten it to heal somehow.
