    First Timer - Seeking Advice and Opinions

    Hey All - I’m a 26 year old male who has had two pits for the better part of 10 years. It wasn’t until recently ( I was too embarrassed to tell/ask anyone) that I figured out what the two holes were. Saw a colorectal surgeon and he basically said my pits are so big they drain on they own (one...

    so about 12 or 13 years ago i had a fairly extensive excision for multiple pits. Details are foggy since i was so young, but it took about 2 months or so to heal and i’ve been completely fine since then. Haven’t even thought about it since that time period, until 2 weeks ago. Right after...

    Small Hole in newly healed wound

    Hey guys. I had flap surgery back in June 2017, which broke down shortly after and then eventually healed by Christmas. For the last few weeks a small hole has been appearing and disappearing regularly, with a minor off-white discharge - no odour, pain or blood. The hole is roughly 5mm deep...

    Is it time for surgery? Sinus developed. Links to pics.

    So I had the holes for over 10 years. Not much pain, just moderate discomfort at times when they were inflamed. I had like 3 holes for a long time. Recently I noticed more pain and much more discharge in my underwear and sure enough it looks like a sinus had developed. Also, the 3 holes...

    scab or something on above drained cyst

    I had a cyst that drained on it's own before I could get surgery a few months ago. Since then some sort of scab has formed above where the cyst is. I am not sure if this is another sinus that formed to let the cyst drain (I was asleep when it drained, best/worst thing to wake up to) or what...

    I just don’t know, can you help?

    hello everyone, I’m in a bit of a pickle regarding my sinus that I had operated on last Thursday (1 week ago). My surgeon explained he had 3 options as to what he’d do but wouldn’t know which he’d do until he got in there. I wake up and he’s gone home as I was the last of the evening list so I...

    Fed up

    12 weeks post op, gone from 3.5cm deep to 3cm deep. 5cm width to 4cm width. I know it's healing, but very slowly. I'm 24 years old female, it shocks me that it's taking so long... I'm a student nurse and I've seen 60 year olds who have healed faster than this... The nurses I see every day...

    4th Pilonidal sinus surgery in 4 years - 18 year old female

    I am a 18 year old female. I was first diagnosed with pilonidal sinus when I was 15. We discovered it a little too late so I had to do the surgery immediately as the doctor suggested. They removed a tennis ball sized area and used the technique where they left it open and took a couple of months...
