I discovered I had a pilonidal cyst and after failed drainage treatments, I recieved surgery. After the surgery, the wound was left open and I am currenly attached to a woundvac to close up the wound area. I feel extremely uncomfortable as there is a tube taped above my cocyx and I still feel pain in that area. Everytime I take the bandages and foam off the wound to shower, I feel immense pain as well. How long does this go on for? My doctor keeps telling me he will check on me week by week and every cyst takes a different amount of time but I am curious what the general healing rate is? Also, how people function in their day to day lives if the recovery rate takes quite a few weeks. I have been living on my bed but soon I need to get back to school, work and real life and am worried about doing so.
