I am not new to pilonidal cyst , but am sitting here feeling my 3rd abcess in a year start . I am so distraught that I am going to have to go through this horribly painful and long experience again and worst of all that I am dragging my husband along too. I have had both previous abscesses surgically drained and took months, like 2-3 months of packing the wound daily for them to heal. I can't physically or emotionally do this any more!!! I am crying for a solution or an end!!! This has been the only disease that I literally think about everyday because I know any day this can happen all over again and the pain is unbelievable. I am despiratly searching for a surgeon who knows what they are doing and are not just going to pack my wound for months. I am in my final months of nursing school and this needs to end.
