I have not been diagnosed with HS but am starting to strongly suspect this may be what is causing my problem.
I have had issues with "abceses" for a very long time. I just recently had surgery for a pilonidal cyst which is not healing, the wound will not close. I also have multiple "abceses" in my Goin area which are currently inflamed and draining. I have thickened looking lines in my groin from previous "abceses".
My question is this:
Could an HS breakout cause tunnels that could go from my pilonidal area to my groin? I know this seems far fetched but it could explain why my surgical site is not healing. Has anyone ever heard of this happening? My home care nurses don't understand why it's not closing or why it keeps having bright green exudate that nothing has gotten rid of. I've been on 3 rounds of antibiotics, iodine placed in the wound, silver packing, salt packing...the list goes on and on. I will be going for revision surgery in 2 weeks if this wound does not heal by then.
I'm at a loss and really at the end of my rope. There has to be a reason that this keeps happening and why my surgical site is not healing.
Thank you in advance for any insight or suggestions
