6 weeks into healing, quite large hole on top of the wound. I think it's back already...

Got my pilonidal sinus removed 6 weeks ago. pre-op i didn't have a lump or pain, just wanted to get it gone ASAP before it gets worse. It looks like the surgery made it worse... i don't know what to do and i am in shock.

Wound was closed with stitches and healed niceley ( the hole is on the top of the wound )

PLEASE consider the Bascom Procedure. You can find more about this on the website. It is well worth your time. I really do urge you to do this so you can hopefully fix this.

Alright, i started this thread months ago but i got an appointment with my surgeon and he only said the wound had trouble healing because of its depth. He uses silver nitrate sticks to help scarring and with 2 appointments of the same treatment i am happy to say that the PC is now gone and the would is fully healed. 3 months later still no sign of it coming back ! :)

I know this thread is a little old but I have a spot like that and I was wondering if during the time between the photo and it completely healed did you have any pain or mild drainage? I had my second surgery in September 2017 when I got my first reoccurrence after my first surgery in July 2010. Since the second surgery I’ve had an open spot much like yours and the surgeon treated it almost a month ago with the awful silver nitrate (burned like hell) and I have had some mild drainage but I also have some pain whenever I sit or lean on it for even 30 min. I’m hoping this will go away.

Yes indeed the burn was god awful with the silver nitrate. I hate very little drainage during that time, but it was minor ( a little blood and pus) but now its fine. I didn't hurt when i sat on it though, could be normal since it still is somewhat and open wound. Ask your surgeon ! Good luck :)
