    Pilonidal And Employment

    I'm currently flare up free for about 3 months now. Looking for a job because im just tired of sitting at home waiting for this thing to come back (plus the bills dont stop). While im still expecting it to come back at some point, im hoping the aggression level of it is subdued enough to...

    To everyone who get terrified when reading stories here!

    First of all, I'm Juan from Colombia, 19y/o male. I've had pilonidal cysts for 3 years now, and before I had like 1 flare-up per year, now, I've had 3 flare-ups in the course of 4 months. So, I decided to search for info online before going to my doctor (and, as I've learned here, I shouldn't go...

    Cyst flare-up finally coming to a head

    Hey all, I've been a long time lurker on these forums. Every time I have a flare up, I always go back here. I finally decided to make an account because there's not much I could lose from posting about this to others who can relate :p. For some background info: I'm 18 years old and I've had...

    I’m 20 years old and as of April 2017 I experienced my first pilonidal cyst. I originally thought I had just bruised my tail bone but as I got sicker and eventually unable to move and in constant pain I realized I had a pilonidal cyst. I had it cut and drained with the wound left open. I only...

    First pilonidal flare since surgery.

    Hi, all, I apologize in advance for not having an awful lot of information handy, but I'll get started. About two years ago I got my first pilonidal cyst/abscess and at the time I had thought I pulled my low back somehow. I had never experienced pain so severe and as it got more swollen and hot...

    Help in Quebec??

    I think I'm going to have an acute flare up in the next few days. I first got this abscess in 2013 and it comes back around every 6 months, and with the swelling it gets to be about the size of my fist. I was supposed to get surgery a year ago but I had to move from California to Quebec so I...
