Survey about pilonidal sinus

Hello everyone!

Let me introduce myself a little bit! My name is Hanneke and I'm a pharmacy-student from the Netherlands. I'm a member of this forum since 2008, and been active posting on this forum for about 1,5 years, because I've been a patient too with pilonidal sinus for 10 years. Since 1,5 years I'm cured. I found a lot of help on this forum, just like I noticed that there are many, many kind of treatments for a pilonidal sinus.

At this moment I'm finishing the first part of my study, the bachelor part, which means I have to write my thesis. I choose the subject "pilonidal sinus and its treatments", because next to all the surgeries, it's also important to see in what way wounds should be packed, etc.. Also for a pharmacist this is very useful, to see why patients are treated in which way.

Like I said before: I noticed the many kinds of treatments currently used to cure a pilonidal sinus, and I'd like to know which of the treatments are used mostly. That's why I made a survey for patients, so that I can make a review of the used treatments and compare it with what's written in the literature. I also made a survey for Dutch patients, because I'm also curious for differences in treatments all over the world.

My question for all of you is:

Can you please help me by filling in this survey? I made an English survey (forgive me if there are small mistakes in the questions.....)... and you can fill it in online. It contains some general questions about the current used treatments and will take 5-10 minutes of your time.

The link to the survey is:

You'll help me a lot with completing the survey!

If you've got any questions, just send me a message or a reply on this forum!
Thanks for helping!!
