    I'm just gonna make this short and quick. In 2014, I had a pilonidal cyst on my power tailbone that made me bleed through by Anus non stop. I had surgery to remove in while trying to finish High school. The incision didn't close at all and it kept leaking.
    I then had a second surgery to make sure we got all of the cyst out of me and then they patched me up and sent me home. Low and behold it keeps leaking non stop while I'm at home and it didn't close. The doctor's suggested that they could rearrange the muscles to force it shut.
    So a few months later I had reconstructive surgery to force the incision close and it seemed like it worked (Keep in mind that this was all in one year). Alas, it started leaking after a few months.
    It's now 2017 and Its still leaking. It stops for about a month or so then leaks blood and fluid for about 2 week. It keeps repeating that. It started last night again and I'm done with this. I want it closed and I'm going to ask them to cauterize it. I'm no stranger to pain, I know what needs to be done. I just want any feedback from anybody. I would really appreciate it. Thank youso much of you read this Masters Thesis of an essay.

    Cautery was the first procedure they have done for me and I will just let you know before you follow through with that, it is what started my life going downhill with plenty more complications.

    I have repeating leaks as well. Mine was through trauma. The embatassing part is that my wound became a socket that collects infections and other matters that should be dispelling from my body. If you know what I mean..urine, feces...sweat...those were observed being trapped in there. I don't think its an easy condition to live with and something quick to heal. Too many tracts connected around pelvic area and it all just leads to each other.

    Sorry to hear your condition like this. I'm having a hard time dealing and coping through this as well.

    I'm sorry to hear that...it's tough when things keep coming back and they won't go away. You just have to stay strong and go into it head first. I have my appointment tomorrow and I'm going to ask for a cauterization. It's literally the only way.

    If you are in the US you should try contacting a cleft lift surgeon to see if there is anything they can do for you.
