I just wanted some peoples opinions on if this has happened to them or if its worth getting a second opinion.
I've had HS for 17 years now, for the last 10 years my dermatologist has been pushing me for the wide excision surgery and I've refused, I was only 17 when they started pushing it on me. Maybe it was vanity, or I was just scared, but I was not ready at 17 to have surgery which would leave a large amount of scarring.
My HS is now obviously worse (I'm now 27) and I have gone back to the dermatologist to agree to the surgery. I have now been told that surgery would be impossible as the area is too wide spread. When I asked if they could just cut out the worst parts and leave the not so bad outter areas I was told no it wasn't possible.
It seems a bit odd to me that they've been pushing surgery on me for a decade and when I finally agree they say they can no longer do it?
Has anyone else had this experience? Would you guys seek a second opinion?
