I've had HS since I was 16. I'm 22 now. I recently had bilateral surgery under both underarms in June. It took 4 months to heal but man they look good for the first time in years!
However! I have another cyst, well over 5cm in circumference that goes from between my thigh and my groin. I'm quite scared to get surgery there as obviously I don't want my lady bits to look... mangled and weird. I also am scared for how long recovery will take. (Underarm surgery took 4 months and I hit rock bottom during those months).
Has anyone had surgery 'down there'/on their thigh and has any advice or things I should know? How long did recovery take? How was walking/toileting and showering? Did you require a skin graft?
I'm seeing my doctor hopefully before the end of the week to see if I can get it removed under local anaesethic or if I need to have the full blown general anaesethic surgery. I guess I'd really appreciate being prepared mentally and emotionally for it if it needs to be a big procedure.
Thanks so much to anyone who can give me advice, and if anyone has any questions about underarm surgery (which seems to be the best thing I've done. I can sleep without towels under my arms for the first time in years!) I'm more than happy to answer them.
