I had my surgery three weeks ago to remove my pilonidal cyst and its almost completely healed I do have a small hole and it currently has packing in it.I do have numbness where the scar is and I dont feel much when its being cleaned and packed.Is it possible that I have nerve damage?

My area is numb too. The doctor said that is normal. He even told me to somewhat expect it. So I don’t Think you have to worry.
