Thank you,

    ... I think I will go ahead with this operation as it seems very good.

    Any comments, especially those concerning after the operation (how do you feel etc...), would be most appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Yas.

    Hi there,

    I have just had a reverse Y plasti which is a plastic surgery technique. I have had the condition for 4 years and this was the first plastic surgery intervention. My surgery did not work 100% as I redeveloped a sinus but i am 100% more comfortable after 6 weeks than i was previously. I am waiting to see if I will require another operation. Even with my experience I would say go for it. I have lived with this for 4 and a half years and would not wish it on anyone

    Thank you for that responce and would you please give me a link to describe the type of operation you had...

    ... how does, the area (where the sinus was), now feel? Can you do normal things as before (e.g sitting comfortably)?

    I am about to have this Rhomboid flap (in about 3 weeks) and have heard that this is very good-- a good end to this unfortunate condition would be nice.

    I appreciate your responce and wish you well.

    Please note graphic pictures in these sites

    Mine was above and under my clitoris hence the reconstruction but as far as I am aware this can be used in any area and can be closed as opposed to left open.

    As i say I have had the sinus back but still 100% less painful than before. I am now having laser hair removal to try to aid the healing process.
