In August I had a pilonidal cyst come up, at first I didn't know what it was. So I went to urgent care and they gave me pain pills and antiobotics, they also sent me home for two days to do heat compressions and to stay off of it. I went back to work the third day and it wasn't going away so the doctor gave me a shot of antiobotics and it helped, with in two days it had went away.
Exactly a month later it came back, so I went back to urgent care and they told me that I was going to have to have surgery so they refreed me to a surgeon, I was to meet with him that Friday but the next day I woke up and I couldnt bend over or put my shoes on, I work at a daycare and I went ahead and tried to go to work but when I got there the pain just got worse and worse so my boss sent me home and I went back to urgent care and they got me into the surgon ASAP. I had suregury and spent the night in the hospital. The next day he took the packing out and that hurt so bad, probably the worset part of the whole process.
After I got home they left a tube in for drainage. He attempted to take it out three weeks later but the pain was too bad, so instead he put a smaller tube in and then three weeks later another smaller tube. Two weeks after that I was still having pain and so he did a CT and it came back clean so he took the tube out and now I am on the upside of the healing process or for me the worest part. I have returned to work and I am scared half to death I am going to have to go through all this again, because I am having pain stilll not as bad as the last time part of me believes it is just my mind and I am worried I will have to go through this again.
In between all of this I got a fungal infection that traveled up my buttocks and then on the sides of each buttock. I had to do a medical withdrawal because I have been out for two months. I have till January to see if it comes back before I start back to school. I was wondering how long it normally takes?
