After weeks of doctors visits and trips to A&E with severe back/tailbone pain I was diagnosed with a pilondial abscess and sent for incision and drainage surgery which took place on 13/1/18. Now, a month and a half on my wound has had no change and remains around 5cm deep. I have been given two sets of antibiotics since and my nurses have said the wound looks clean and healthy so are unsure why it is not healing properly. Is it normal for the wound to have not even began healing yet? I’m off work/uni so spend most of my time relaxing to allow healing better but it’s getting extremely frustrating seeing no end to the daily painful dressing changes. Has anyone experienced this? Is there any steps I could take to speed up the healing process?
