Will it ever end?

I had surgery 11 years ago and since then my cyst has returned quite a few times. My problem is that my scars are so tight that when it does return my skin just splits on its own. So, I'm off to the doctor for meds and just pack the area with gauze. My backside can't take another surgery. As it is there's nothing between my skin and my tail bone now. I don't think there's anything left to cut out.

So far, 2 recurrences. First surgery was June 29, was back before end of August. Second surgery was in October, was back by December. Going for third now (no date set yet, still waiting go so see Dr Monaghan about that)

I had 5 :| My surgeon is a complete joke because we went and saw him every month or so for about 2 years and he kept on saying it was fine, then one day he got someone else to look at it. They took me into surgery and found 5.

So my initial surgery, 2 yrs later a second surgery to 'scrape' the wound (thinking the flesh just wouldn't nit together) then a third one a fortnight later to remove FIVE sinus'.

That's the public health service in Australia for you...
