(Before I get into this, I'm new to the forums. I'm currently 19 years old and my dream is to become a professional wrestler, this issue is making it difficult to make these dreams a reality.) Hello everyone, I hope all is having a happy holiday. Please excuse my grammer as English and language arts has never been my cup of tea. I am incredibly frustrated with the amount of time that has been wasted with this issue. In January, my "sinus" got infected. I went to my doctor and he referred me to a colon and rectal surgeon. Basically all went well until it kept flaring up. I got surgery June 7th. All went well, until the incision opened up on July 4th. So here's the kicker, my doctor basically used silver nitrate and shaved it for $30 dollar co payments every week or so. As me and my parents grew frustrated we asked how this can be healed. He reffered us to a plastic surgeon. Very nice woman might I add. She told me that she'd do the CLEFT LIFT. I was incredibly pleased. I was so excited I actually didn't wanna sleep the night before surgery. So I got my surgery, only to wake up to the horror of the words "I actually did what your previous doctor did. " I was promised it was done more precisley and more thought was put into it. Well, three weeks later my staple "came" loose. It had to of been loose because I listened to every single instruction. Now here I am, early Christmas morning frustrated, confused and (I hate using this term) depressed. The doctor is now sending me to my previous doctor to get a scope in my rectum? Never read anything about that in this forum. I have to wait a "few months " to get ANOTHER surgery. Which is ridiculous, So basically what I am asking from my pilondial sisters and brethren, has anyone experienced a similar situation to this? Was a scope involved? When will this all end? I'm in Pennsylvania, so anyone know of experienced cleft lift doctors? I'm sick of this and I want my life back! Thank you to anyone who replies to this with any insight or feed back. Everyone have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
