I have struggled with Pilonidal disease for almost 20 years. I had two sinus tracts that continued to get infected. I had the cleft lift surgery about 9 days ago and I feel like the second week has started rather bad with an increase of clear draining fluid and some blood coming from the incision. I feel like the first week was easy compared to this week. I can feel the incision oozing all day long and it is unnerving. I contacted my surgeon’s office yesterday, sent a picture, and they said it is normal. They also said to keep it clean and dry but do not sit or spread my cheeks. It just does not feel or sound right based on what I have been reading. I did not have a drain put in so I can understand why I am having drainage. I went to a highly recommend colorectal surgeon. The follow up by my surgeon post operation has been awful though. I am just worried that all this oozing is going to delay my healing. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what did you do?
