Stop Worrying

#21
I'm not trying to discourage you and I do hope you have no further problems. The truth is the wound can still reopen many months after the stitches are taken out. You should have been told this. You do still need to be careful with it because of the location. Again I hate to even say it because I don't want to dampen your spirits but I feel it's important for you and others reading this thread to understand. Best of luck to you.
I am almost 3 months post op now. I do HIIT for an hour 5 times a week. Haven't had any problems with my incision at all. No re opening. No pain. No drainage. Staying optimistic and living a normal life again.

Update:
3 months post op. Still doing great. Never having problems with scar. Never having problems with sitting. Only time I have very minor weird feelings in my surgical site is when I'm constipated. And as soon as I go to the bathroom, it instantly goes away. I understand it's still healing inside, BUT I don't do anything different or restrictive to protect my area. I live life as I always have, and I have not had any issues. I'll keep updating until my 1 year post op. Hang in there people!!

Do you do squats? Because I'm concerned I won't be able to do them. My wound definitely isn't big compared to most around here but I'm just worried because I don't wanna look like a guy who skips leg day hahaha

I am going in to have what looks like a pilondial cyst removed. I'm just really scared about the lancing, pain mainly, and then the actual removal. I also am concerned about downtime, especially if the doctor opts to leaving the area open to heal. I am in summer school so ideally I would be stitched up on a friday and heal over a weekend and be able to return on a Monday.

I do everything that I was able to do before about 1 month post surgery. You will be fine! Just ease your way back into it.

How did your lancing go? For me the lancing was worse than the actual removal/surgery.

I never went in for surgery. I kept putting off seeing the doctor because I was making myself scared. When I did see a doctor they said my cyst was small and nothing to worry about
The surgery is nothing compared to a lancing. If your cyst is small (mine was) they will close the wound and you'll feel fine. I had zero post op pain. I felt fine. And glad I went through with it.
