So had my incision and drainage of a recurring pilonidal sinus. It was a wide incision left open to heal from the inside out. I was pretty much forced to have the operation by the NHS if I might add. It's now 5 weeks after the surgery and I've already failed college, almost at the point where I'll lose both my jobs because of having to leave work really early to have the open wound packed for healing purposes. Now both of my bosses are getting very very frustrated and my jobs are hanging on a thin rope here. I probably have another 3-4 weeks to go for the healing and I just can't risk it. So what I'm meaning to ask is can I request that my Surgeon from the NHS stitch up what's left of the healing wound so I don't have to visit my practice nurse anymore?
