Hi, I had a Pilonidal sinus back 13 years ago and had 6 operations as it wouldn’t heal. The last op they did meant you could put your whole hand in it. It took 3 years or so to heal and gave me hell! Now 10 days ago I had another op for a Pilonidal sinus and the surgeon didn’t really take much away, and didn’t pack it so 2 days later it had closed and the doctors weren’t happy, so back to the hospital to drain again. Came out with a 4.5cm long cut and a 4cm deep hole and was told to pack it everyday. Been packing daily with the nurses, and they decided they can’t see how it’s going to heal the way they have cut into it and thinks it over granulating. They called the surgeons and asked for them to look at it. Went in this morning to the most horrible guy who said he wasn’t sure why I was here as it was perfect and how nurses shouldn’t have a say as they know nothing! I explained the over granulating and he said it wasn’t so I asked for a second opinion. Finally got one and it was the guy who operated on me the second time and he said it is over granulating but it was fine and to stop packing it now and to let it heal over the top. I said the hole is still there and shouldn’t it heal from the bottom up and he said it’s nice and clean so for a less risk of getting an infection if it closes from the top then it can take however long it needs underneath. I’m still to have it dressed and checked at the nurses but no packing. He said if it goes bad, then come back and we can operate again. Has anyone ever heard of doing this before????
