How r you doing now. I am planning to under go kshar sutra after 2 failed surgeries. Any advice from your side regarding kshar sutra?

So it's been 5 years now and so far so good! No recurrences even though my job requires me to constantly be sitting on the computer. I can highly recommend kshar sutra. The only thing I would keep in mind is that in the end it is an open wound which needs quite some time to heal.

Also, you should be aware of how much your doctor knows and make sure that he sterilizes everything before use :)

Good luck and keep us posted!

Sorry I just randomly decided to check up on my old posts on here and saw this. I am hoping that you had a successful procedure and that the would has healed up for you. In my case it really did take a long time, around 4 months and I was getting very frustrated by the end of it. Do not lose hope though and let your body do its work :).

I am taking more time to heal. can I know how much time it took you to heal after thread removal? can I have your email?

Don't just do what he would rather do. You will be on a longer road to recovery.

Get the cleft lift with a Hall of Fame surgeon on this site. You story sounds like mine 18 years ago.

After 18 years of draining and pain and 2 weeks for surgery healing - I have had no issues for 2 years after the procedure.
Hi Ladinolip, was looking for an update if you still come here? You have had the cleft lift? How are you doing now?
