I am at the time of writting this recovering from my 3rd surgical procedure in so many years. Having suffered for about 20 years from increasingly frequent painful abcesses and having had buckets loads of antibiotics, drainage of absesses etc I was eventualy referred to a plastic surgeon who initally excised and packed the areas of chronic infection in both armpits. This unfortunately developed into fistulas which continued to leak offensive pus dispite antibiotics.Again I had surgery .This timrehe totally removed all hair follicles,sweat glands etc (extensive surgery) with skin grafts. This time IT WORKED. Yes the graft site was extremly painful but my armpits no longer leaked and were healed within 10weeks thanks to the daily dressings by the district nurses.I could wear light coloured clothes without the embarressment of leakage marking my clothes.Thank you Mr Stewart.Go for it if you are offered surgery as it was worth it.This time I have had surgery to my buttocks which were leaking and required me to wear pads all the time. They are healing well.
