hi, ive been suffer with HS for around ten years now, i dont get flare ups its pretty much a constant battle with pain, i have 'boils' both sides of my groin with lots and lots of ugly dark coloured scars. 3 weeks ago i got a huge cluster of about 8 or 9 boils all otuching eachother my thigh was so swollen i couldnt close my legs had troble sitting down and bending. ive been on numerous different anti biotics for around 3 months now and they are coming out faster than ever, i ended up in a&e 2 weeks ago with this cluster and they wanted to operate but said id need to be asleep as it was so deep i freaked out and refused promising them id go back in 3 days if it was no better. i went back and was referred to a plastic surgeon which im now waiting for the appointment for as they said the cosmetic outcome would be better in the long term if i could stand it til then, i was always adamant id deal with the pain and would not have surgery becasue ive heard repeatedly theat when someone has a part of the body affected by hs cut out that they get them somewhere else in time, im petrified on them coming back on my neck or armpits at least where they are there not visible. any advice on surgery would be very helpful, im rapidly reaching the end of my tether xx
