Pilonidal Sinus - Negative Pressure Therapy

Posted , 1 user is following.

I am due to have surgery on my pilonidal sinus in 12 days in the UK. I am having a wide excision open wound using negative pressure therapy.

My question is has anyone else had this treatment and what was the recovery etc like? And any tips for making recovery more comfortable.

I have had 4 incision and drainage operations in 4 years for my pilonidal sinus so looking forward to finally getting this sorted hopefully once and for all

looking forward to seeing your thoughts
